Fellowships are given annually to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers for monthlong residencies at the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, Massachusetts, to research pre-twentieth-century American history and culture. A stipend of $1,350 and on-campus housing is provided; fellows residing off-campus receive $1,850. The fellowships support research for creative work that informs the general public, such as historical poems and novels. Residencies may take place any time in 2015. Submit 10 copies of up to 25 pages of poetry or prose, a five-page project proposal, a résumé, and two letters of recommendation (sent directly to AAS by the references) by October 5. There is no entry fee. Send an SASE, call, e-mail, or visit the website for complete guidelines.
