UST National Writing Fellowship opens the call for budding authors
Aspiring book authors working on their manuscripts may receive support from the country's finest writers through the University of Santo Tomas (UST) National Writing Fellowship 2024.
Selected applicants will participate in craft lectures and one-on-one consultation sessions with resident fellows of the UST Center for Creative Writing and Literary Studies, who will help them develop their manuscripts.
UST will cover board and lodging expenses for budding writers during the fellowship, which takes place in June or July 2024 at a location outside of Manila.
Applicants must be at least 23 years old by the start of the workshop and have not published more than two full-length literary books or those 50 pages and above.
They must be willing to join the weeklong fellowship and actively participate in craft lectures.
Applicants must submit a project proposal and an excerpt of their work.
They should also include a writing curriculum vitae, a concise project description, and a sample of previously published work.
For those without a published book — individual pieces published in reputable print or online journals, anthologies, films, and plays, among others — may be submitted.
Fiction, creative nonfiction, and hybrid or experimental works will be prioritized.
The UST National Writing Fellowship accepts submissions in English or Filipino only.
Budding writers should submit the requirements in PDF or Word format to [email protected].
The submission deadline is on December 18, 2023. #
