Our Fellowship is accepting applications March 1 – April 18th, 2016!

To encourage writers to continue to produce new works of quality fiction at the very busiest point in their parenting journey, the 2016-2017 Pen Parentis Writing Fellowship for New Parents is now open for submissions! Please visit our fellowship guidelines page for details.

Past fellows have been inspired to publish books, win grants, and their work has won many awards. The photo is of the lovely and gracious Orli Van Mourik who won our Fellowship last year and, we are delighted to report, has a new story imminently forthcoming in Joyland!

Need a kickstart to your writing career, now that you have a family to raise? That’s what we’re all about. This is our seventh year running this fellowship! Let us inspire you to write something new!
