Applications are now available for Intermedia Arts’ Beyond the Pure Fellowships for Writers (formerly the SASE Jerome Grants for Emerging Writers), a fellowship program that awards grants of up to $4,000 to four to six emerging Minnesota writers each year. In addition to their grant award, recipients also participate in a year-long fellowship program that provides community, guidance, peer support, and conversation throughout the program year.
Intermedia Arts’ Beyond the Pure Fellowships for Writers places a particular emphasis on increasing the visibility of and providing a platform for emerging writers whose voices have historically been underrepresented in the literary arts, including (but not limited to): writers of color, LGBT writers, women, new and recent immigrant communities, native and Indigenous writers, low-income writers, and writers exploring non-traditional pathways to success.
Application deadline is 6:00 pm, Monday, March 31, 2014. Info session dates, application materials, and complete program information available at: www.intermediaarts.org/beyond-the-pure-fellowships.
