Deadline for Summer Residency Contest

12/16/2013 - 11:59pm

Since 1994, the Poetry Center’s Residency Program has offered writers an opportunity to develop their work. Beginning in Spring 2014, the Poetry Center will award one residency each summer for a poet to spend two to four weeks in Tucson, Arizona developing his/her work. Writers at any stage of their careers may apply; emerging writers are welcome. The residency includes a $150 stipend per week and a two-to-four-week stay in a studio apartment located within steps of the Center’s renowned library of contemporary poetry. The residency is offered between June 1 and August 31.

This is not a blind submission process. The judge is asked to acknowledge any conflict of interest and not invite friends, students, or family members to apply. Current University of Arizona faculty, staff, students, and Tucson residents are not eligible to receive the Fellowship. International applicants are welcome.
