available in alternating years. For FY 2012, which is covered
by these guidelines, fellowships in prose are available. 

Fellowships in poetry will be offered in FY 2013 and guidelines
will be available in January 2012. Individuals may apply only
once each year.

Direct questions to the Literature staff at

Applicants may use digital, audio, or online publications to establish
up to fifty percent of their eligibility, provided that such
publications have competitive selection processes and stated
editorial policies. Works where the writer paid for publication
are not eligible in the qualifying process.

Hope someone applies.  Make it happen.

Talk tomorrow,
