Creative Writing

The Creative Writing Fellowship awards five $5,000 Luminarts Fellowships for excellence in creative writing in the categories or prose and poetry. Applicants submit a two-page written piece (either a stand-alone piece or an excerpt of a larger piece such as a novel or short story). Entries are submitted and reviewed by an initial panel of jurors. Once reviewed, all top entries go to the final juror panel and the winners are selected. Jurors are comprised of professional authors, novelists, and poets, literary contributors, publishers, editors, journalists and media contributors.
