Creative Writing Fellowship

Malone University Creative Writing Fellowships are competitive, merit-based awards of $2,500 and $1,000 for students who plan to pursue Creative Writing as a major or minor.

Fellows are selected based on the quality of their writing and the strength of their desire to develop their gifts through study and practice. An opportunity to room with another writer also will be available to creative writing fellows.

Application Guidelines:
Submit a selection of your creative writing plus a brief artist's statement in a single document, Microsoft Word or PDF format. Email with a cover letter to the director of creative writing or upload it using the form below.

Please abide by the following page limits:
Poetry: 10 pages maximum, no more than one poem per page
Fiction/Non-fiction: One story or essay, 15 pages maximum, double spaced.

* You may submit writing in more than one genre, but your manuscript may not exceed 15 total pages.

The artist's statement is not to exceed one page, single-spaced, and should explore some aspect of your artistic vision: a guiding aesthetic philosophy or theology, decisive influences, and arc of development, artistic and professional ambitions, the role reading plays in your writing life, and/or something particular about the submitted writing sample. There are no hard and fast requirements here, write well, creative.

Fall priority deadline for application materials:  December 1.

Spring Deadline:  March 1 (contingent on available funds)

Please direct any questions to the fellowships to John Estes, Ph.D.
