I am writing in hopes that you will forward the information below, regarding

Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts

For the last forty years, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown has run 
the largest and longest residency Fellowship in the United States for 
emerging visual artists and writers.  Artists who have not had significant
recognition for their work and writers who have not yet published a full-length
book of creative work are welcome to apply.  Fellows receive a seven-month
stay (October 1­­-April 30) at the Work Center and a $750 monthly stipend
Fellows do not pay or work in exchange for their Fellowships in any way. 
Fellows are chosen based on the excellence of their work. Former visual
arts Fellows include Ellen Gallagher, Jack Pierson, Lisa Yuskavage,
Angela Dufresne, Geoffrey Chadsey, and Lamar Peterson.  Former writing
Fellows--nearly all of whom came here before the publication of their first books--have won every
major national award in writing including the
National Book Award and seven Pulitzer Prizes.  Former writing Fellows
include Denis Johnson, Louise Glück, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Yusef Komunyakaa. 

The postmark deadline for the 2013-14 Writing Fellowships is December 1, 2012.
