The Oregon Literary Fellowships application deadline is June 26, 2009, which means there is plenty of time to apply.
Since 1987, Literary Arts has honored more than 500 writers and publishers and has distributed nearly $600,000 in grants and awards through the Oregon Literary Fellowships program.
Oregon Literary Fellowships help Oregon writers initiate, develop or complete literary projects in poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama and young readers’ literature. Writers in the early stages of their career are encouraged to apply.
The fellowships also support Oregon’s independent publishers and small presses. They are awarded to presses or magazines that demonstrate a commitment to literary publishing in the areas of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama and young readers’ literature.
