The PEN Emerging Voices Fellowship program is a highly respected writer workshop program for writers of underserved communities (i.e. writers of color, women, LGBT, immigrants, writers with disabilities, etc...) If you're interested, and able to commit for a year to the L.A.-based program, read the description below and check out the Emerging Voices website.
This mentorship project enhances the careers of emerging writers from underserved communities. PEN selects writers of promise from community-based arts organizations or at-large to participate in an intensive eight-month program of workshops, master classes, seminars, readings, and individual mentoring. Applications and guidelines for the 2006 cycle are now available.
DEADLINE: September 9, 2005. Read the brochure online and download the application.
