We applaud CantoMundo as they continue to build on the aesthetically, culturally, and linguistically diverse work of Latina/o poets, who have historically—and with limited economic resources—formed supportive literary spaces. CantoMundo’s first gathering convened in 2010.
The CantoMundo Fellowship includes application fee, tuition, and lodging near the venue, and is open by application to past and present CantoMundo fellows. The approximate value of the fellowship is $2,000. Transportation and meals are the responsibility of the fellow.
The recipient will be an outstanding poet who will benefit from and contribute to participation in the workshop. A writing sample, letter of introduction, and description of need are an integral part of the application and selection process. The deadline to apply for this fellowship is November 10, 2017.
