Emerging Writer Fellowship
Initiated in 2007 and modeled on the Stadler Fellowship, the Emerging Writer Fellowship program offers poets who have recently completed their graduate work the chance to contribute to a thriving poetry center while providing time for the completion of a first book of poems. Like the Stadler Fellow, the Emerging Writer Fellow assists for twenty hours each week in the administration of the Stadler Center or in the editing of West Branch, Bucknell’s nationally distinguished literary journal. The Emerging Writer also serves as an instructor and staff member in the Bucknell Seminar for Younger Poets in June. The stipend is $20,000. The Emerging Writer Fellowship includes health insurance, office space in the Stadler Center, and a stipend is provided for housing.
Please check back in late fall for information on future application deadlines.
