Fellowships and Discounts

Fellowships

Fellowships are available to help some participants defray the cost of attendance. Because funds are limited and we try to help as many applicants as possible, we limit fellowship awards to $100 - $500 for the essay, poetry, and short fiction workshops or $100 - $600 for the hybrid and novel intensive workshops.
