Deadline Looms for Black Lives Fellowship at Dairy Hollow
The submission deadline for the “Illuminating Black Lives” fellowship is midnight CST on Monday, November 29, 2021.
This fellowship invites writers to explore the African-American experience. The work may be in any literary genre: fiction or nonfiction, poetry or prose, or a combination. It may take place now or in the past. It may draw upon the life of the author or probe other lives. There is no expectation of a certain attitude or type of experience. Rather, the successful application will demonstrate insight, honesty, literary merit, and the likelihood of publication.
Two fellowship winners will each receive a two-week residency at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow. The fellowship provides uninterrupted writing time, a European-style gourmet dinner served on weeknights, the camaraderie of other professional writers when desired, and a community kitchen stocked with the basics.
