The Associates of the Boston Public Library is currently accepting applications for its fourteenth Writer-in-Residence. The program was created to provide an emerging children's author with the financial support and quiet space needed to complete one literary work. Eligible projects include fiction, nonfiction, a script, graphic novel, or poetry, intended for children or young adults.
The fellowship provides a $20,000 stipend and an office at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square from September 2017 through May 2018.
Applications must be postmarked by April 14th. To learn more about the program and prior winners please go here. The application form can be found here.
