In her classic feminist essay A Room of One’s Own Virginia Woolf said that “one cannot write properly unless one has dined properly.” Writers who are having difficulty dining properly due to a lack of funds may want to apply for an Oregon Literary Fellowship before the deadline on Friday, June 27th.

Applicants must be current Oregon residences who have not received this particular fellowship in the past five years. A writer may only apply in one category and there is no application fee. Applicants will be judged by a panel of out of stage judges. The fellowship program is organized by Literary Arts. According to its website, “The amount, number and categories of fellowships will be determined from the quality and quantity of applications, and the availability of funds.”

Past recipients have included Sarah Marshall, who is a student and writer for Believer Magazine and Robert Arellano, who is a professor of Creative writing at Southern Oregon University and the author of six books.

The fellowship is intended to fund new projects and projects already in development. Categories include poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama, and young readers literature.

Bloggers should be advised that the community also offers fellowships for online publications.
