Attention emerging Minnesota writers!
Intermedia Arts’ Beyond the Pure: Fellowships for Writers applications now available for 2017. Deadline to apply is December 1, 2016.
Beyond the Pure Fellowships for Writers award grants of up to $5,000 to four to six emerging Minnesota writers. In addition to their grant award, recipients will also participate in a nine-month fellowship program that provides peer support, guidance, community, and resources throughout the program.
The 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, LGBTQIA+ writers, women, new and recent immigrant communities, Native and Indigenous writers, low-income writers, and writers exploring non-traditional pathways to success. This program defines an emerging writer as a writer whose work demonstrates a sustained level of accomplishment and commitment, but who has not yet received widespread recognition from peers and/or industry as an established professional writer.
