National Endowment for the Arts (Poetry) Application Deadline is March 4
Fellowships in prose (fiction and creative nonfiction) or poetry are available to published creative writers. Fellowships enable recipients to set aside time for writing, research, travel, and general career advancement. This program operates on a two-year cycle with fellowships in prose available in FY 2010 and fellowships in poetry available in FY 2011. Individuals may apply only once each year.

If you have questions about your application, please contact the Literature staff at 202/682-5034 or e-mail LitFellowships@arts.gov. Deadline for poetry fellowship is March 4, 2010.

Individuals must submit their applications electronically through Grants.gov, the federal government’s online application system. See "How to Prepare and Submit an Application" for further information. Late applications will not be accepted.

In the event of a major emergency that affects a large number of applicants for an extended period of time (e.g., a multi-state power outage or a natural disaster such as a hurricane), the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts may decide to adjust application deadlines for applicants in the affected area. If this occurs, the Arts Endowment will post an announcement on its Web site.
