Poetry Coalition Launches New Fellowship Program

The Poetry Coalition, a network of poetry organizations coordinated by the Academy of American Poets, has launched the Poetry Coalition Fellowship program, a three-year pilot program that will offer paid fellowship positions to five fellows per year, who will each assist a different Poetry Coalition organization for twenty hours per week over the course of a forty-week period. The fellows will also receive professional development opportunities. In consideration of health concerns due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these positions will be remote. The fellowship program is made possible by the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Applications for the 2020 Poetry Coalition Fellowship program are being accepted from May 20 through July 15. The positions will begin on September 15 and end on June 30, 2021. Interested individuals who are 21 or older are encouraged to apply, including those who are enrolled in or have recently graduated from MFA programs in creative writing. The five organizations hosting the inaugural Poetry Coalition Fellows beginning this year are CantoMundoCave CanemKundimanMizna, and Split This Rock. Those interested in applying for a Poetry Coalition Fellowship at any of the 2020 host organizations, visit their websites.
