Info Session: The Margins & Open City Fellowships


The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is now accepting applications for two separate opportunities for emerging Asian American writers: The Margins Fellowship and the Open City Project Fellowship. Come learn more and meet our editors at an information session on Tuesday, June 28.

About the Fellowships:

The Open City Project Fellowship will give writers the opportunity to write and publish narrative nonfiction over the span of six months on the vibrant immigrant communities of New York City. Grantees receive $2,500, publication opportunities in Open City, which documents the pulse of metropolitan Asian America as it’s being lived on the streets of New York right now, and journalism training through the Open City Workshop Series. For the period of August 2016-January 2017 we will bring on three Open City Project Grantees. Apply on our Submittable page.

The Margins Fellowship gives emerging creative writers aged thirty and under the chance to establish a home for their writing. Each of our fellows receives $5,000, access to the AAWW space, publishing opportunities in our magazines, 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, Vijay Iyer, Kim Hyesoon, Hanya Yanagihara, Amitava Kumar, and been linked to by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and The New Inquiry. Apply on our Submittable page.

The deadline to apply is Friday, July 1, 2016, by 11 pm. Don’t forget to read our FAQ.
