Applications are open for A Public Space’s Emerging Writers Fellowships for 2016

A Public Space is looking for emerging writers to award their fellowship to for 2016. Three writers will be selected for six-month fellowships, which will include: Mentoring from an established author, publication in the magazine, contributor’s payment of $1000, and the option of a free workspace in A Public Space’s Brooklyn offices.

Their focus when reviewing applications will be on: “finding writers who have not yet published or been contracted to write a book-length work and who would benefit from the time, space, and editorial attention the fellowships offer.” Previous recipients of the fellowships can be found here.

This year, in addition to the other application material, fellowship applicants are being asked to write about a place that has been important to their writing.

Are you an emerging writer with an essay or story ready to submit? Apply here within November 15!
