The Palm Beach Poetry Festival is pleased to announce it will partner with three very special organizations, Cave Canem, CantoMundo and Kundiman, to offer three fellowships for the upcoming 12th Annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival, January 18-23, 2016 in Delray Beach Florida.
Each of three fellowships include application fee, tuition, and lodging near the venue. 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. Fellowships are open by application to past and present CantoMundo, Cave Canem, and Kundiman fellows. The deadline to apply for these fellowships is November 9, 2015.
Our partners in this effort are:
