creative writing fellowship: Colgate University
Colgate University invites applications for the Olive B. O'Connor Fellowship in Creative Writing. Writers of nonfiction and poetry who have recently completed an MFA, MA, or PhD in creative writing, and who need a year to complete their first book, are encouraged to apply. The selected writers will spend the academic year (late August 2014 to early May 2015) at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York. The fellows will teach one creative writing course each semester and will give a public reading from the work in progress. The fellowship carries a stipend of $37,500 plus travel expenses; health and life insurance are provided.
Complete applications, which should arrive by January 15, 2014, consist of a cover letter; resume; three letters of recommendation, at least one of which should address the candidate's abilities as a teacher; and a maximum of 30 double-spaced manuscript pages of prose or 20 single-sided pages of poetry. The writing sample may be a completed work or an excerpt from something larger. Colgate is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Developing and sustaining a diverse faculty and staff further the University's education mission. Complete applications must be submitted through https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/fellowship/2938.
