The Margins and Open City Fellowships - Information Session

The AAWW is excited to announce the call for two separate fellowships for emerging Asian American writers tied to the magazines we publish. Come learn more and meet our editors at an information session this Thursday, May 8.

About the Fellowships:

The Open City Fellowship, now in its fourth year, gives five writers the opportunity to write and publish short-form and long-form narrative nonfiction on the vibrant immigrant communities of New York City. This year we’re announcing a new opportunity, The Margins Fellowship, which gives three emerging creative writers (fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction) aged thirty and under the chance to establish a home for their writing and a space to develop their careers. Each of our fellows will receive $5,000, access to the AAWW space, publishing opportunities in our magazines, free workshops, and more. The Margins fellows will also receive residencies at the Millay Colony for the Arts, an innovative seven-acre artists retreat space at the former house and gardens of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. All fellows will serve as writers-in-residence with our online magazines, which have published Chang-rae Lee, Jessica Hagedorn, Ashok Kondabolu, Sarah Gambito, Jad Abumrad, and been linked to by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and The New Inquiry.

The deadline is Friday, May 16, by 11 pm. Don’t forget to read our FAQ.
