The annual Pen Parentis Writing Fellowship for New Writers was founded in 2010 to encourage writers to produce new works of quality fiction at the very busiest point in their parenting...
Get typing! Our Fellowship Deadline LOOMS! This year we are looking for *short* pieces – we really want you to write something new – remember our mission is to keep parents on creative track after having a baby. So put that darling little beast to sleep and type fast. Let your mind go wild–remember we are not necessarily looking for stories about kids, we are looking for YOUR BEST WORK (but if your best work is about your kid, of course you can send it, you can send anything! No genre limitations within fiction — So surprise us!) Use that sleep deprivation to go wild.
Here are the guidelines for the 2017-2018 Fellowship. Make yourself CREATE. Make those minutes count.
