Apply for the Attic Institute Fellowship at RWW

We are excited to announce the opening for applications to the special collaboration between the Attic Institute of Arts and Letters and the Rainier Writing Workshop. The Rainier Writing Workshop is one of the premier low-residency MFA programs in the country, based at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington.  

The Attic Institute Fellowship funds one writer's attendance to the annual RWW summer residency, which takes place on the Pacific Lutheran University campus.

The Fellow will attend the residency from Aug 2-6, 2019, participating in workshops, classes, and other activities offered during the residency. Room, board, and tuition are free: a $700 value (the Fellow will pay for his/her transportation to Tacoma).

The Attic Institute Fellowship is intended for a writer who does not have an MFA but is interested in knowing more about the low-residency MFA experience.  

Writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry are invited to apply for the fellowship. To apply, send a writing sample of 5-10 pages, names (s) of the Attic workshops you've taken, and a brief essay (no more than 500 words) describing your writing history so far, your writing goals, and your reasons for wanting to participate in the RWW residency as an Attic Institute Fellow.  

The deadline for submitting the application is Friday, March 29, by 5PM
