A collaboration between Dzanc Books and the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) has made possible four full fellowships for writers of Luso descent from North America to attend the ILP's Writing the Luso Experience workshop in Lisbon in 2018.
To be eligible for the fellowship, entrants must be residents of the United States or Canada who have a genealogical link to a Lusophone country.
The four winners will receive accommodations, a travel stipend, and full tuition to the 2018 ILP in Lisbon to attend Katherine Vaz’s multi-genre workshop “Writing the Luso Experience” with other writers from Portugal and North America.** Runners-up will be offered partial tuition discounts.
What to submit: 1) A 250-word statement about your background and what the fellowship would mean to you. 2) A maximum ten page writing sample in any genre (poetry, fiction, nonfiction). Excerpts from longer works are welcome.
There is no reading fee.
Deadline: Postmark or electronic mail date stamp of Feb. 9, 2018
