Two nine-month residencies at Colgate University, including a stipend of $40,500, health benefits, and travel expenses, are given annually to poets, fiction writers, or nonfiction writers. The 2018–2019 fellowships will be given to a fiction writer and a nonfiction writer working on their first books. Each fellow will teach one creative writing course per semester and give a public reading. Writers who have recently completed an MFA, MA, or PhD in creative writing are eligible. Using the online submission system, submit up to 30 pages of prose, a résumé, and three letters of recommendation by February 1. There is no entry fee.
