Guidelines for 2017 Dickinson House fellowship applications


Dickinson House is pleased to offer two fellowships to writers for its 2017 residency season. These fellowships (all two-week residencies) waive the residency fee (room and board). Fellows are responsible for travel costs, their own insurance and visa fees, and any incidentals.

Fellowships are awarded based on merit and need. People of color, women, and queer/LGBT people are especially encouraged to apply.

You do not need to apply for a residency separately if you apply for a fellowship. Your fellowship application constitutes application for residency.

To apply for a 2017 fellowship, send one PDF document containing the following in this order:

  1. A brief essay that tells us why you're applying to come to Dickinson House at this point in your work. What can we offer you—and what will you bring? Show us you're familiar with the space and its ethos. Excite us about having you here in community. (500 words)
  2. Your plans for your residency. (200 words)
  3. If applicable: a statement of financial/circumstantial need. Financial/ circumstantial need is a major determinant for this fellowship. (300 words)
  4. On its own page: any dates you are not available to be in residence (in 2017 we will be open in late May, June, July, August, and early September).
  5. Ten separately paginated pages of recent work (any genre or anything in between genres; 'separately paginated' means that the first page of your work sample should be numbered 1 and the last 10).

Applications are open from May 15 until September 15 (Belgian time). From midnight on May 15 until 11:59 p.m. on May 30 (both Belgian time), there is no application fee. From May 31 until September 15, the fee is €15 (about $17). 

All applications are anonymized. Do not leave any identifying marks on your application. Applications with identifiers (name, etc.) will not be read by the jury. Please do, however, indicate clearly if you belong to a demographic which Dickinson House wishes to serve: writers of color, women writers, lgbtq writers.
