Individual Artist Fellowships of $5,000 each are given annually to Minnesota writers, and Career Development Grants of up to $3,000 each are given twice a year to Minnesota writers to pursue a specific arts opportunity. Poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers who are U.S. citizens, at least 18 years of age, and have lived in Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, or St. Louis counties in northeastern Minnesota for at least six months are eligible. Students enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program are ineligible for the Individual Artist Fellowships; students enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program related to the arts are ineligible for the Career Development Grants. For both awards, using the online submission system, submit up to 10 pages of poetry or 15 pages prose, a description of the work sample, an application, a project description and budget, and a résumé of up to two pages by April 30. There is no entry fee. Call, e-mail, or visit the website for the required entry form and complete guidelines.
