MCKNIGHT FELLOWSHIPS FOR WRITERS NOW OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS
November 22, 2019
The Loft is pleased to announce the 2020 McKnight Artist Fellowships for Writers, made possible by the generous support of the McKnight Foundation. These awards Minnesota writers of demonstrated ability with an opportunity to work on their craft for a concentrated period of time.
One $25,000 fellowship will be awarded to a writer for children 8 years of age or younger. Four $25,000 fellowships will be offered to writers of poetry and spoken word.
In addition to the award money, McKnight Fellows are also entitled to up to $3,000 in reimbursement to attend a writing conference or retreat during their fellowship year. The Spoken Word Fellow will have the opportunity to work with our partners at IFP to create a short spoken word video.
