Emerging Writer Fellowship

The Georgia Review just launched an Emerging Writer Fellowship Program and applications are open from June 1st-August 15th.

In conjunction with the literary journal's publication of their special issue SoPoCo, the fellowship program also launches "in partnership with the nonprofit artist residency program AIR Serenbe, which is based outside of Atlanta.  The winners—one in prose, one poetry—will receive publication, win a one-month stay at AIR Serenbe, and give a reading in Athens, Georgia, with a $1500 honorarium and all travel and lodging provided. We invite emerging writers who write from these diasporic communities to apply. Applicants must not have published a full-length book, or have one under contract, by the application deadline."
