The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown has supported emerging writers and artists for over 50 years, granting 10 annual fellowships to writers and 10 annual fellowships to visual artists for a seven-month residency that runs from October 1 - April 30.

Fellows are selected through a rigorous jury process. The Fine Arts Work Center Writing Fellowship counts among its alumni Louise Glück, Jhumpa Lahiri, Michael Cunningham, Susan Choi, Denis Johnson, Ann Patchett, Ada Limón, Nick Flynn, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Marie Howe, Salvatore Scibona, Paul Harding and other critically acclaimed writers, many of whom have gone on to receive the highest commendations in contemporary American literature.

Fellows are provided with private accommodations on the grounds of The Fine Arts Work Center, as well as a modest monthly stipend. The duration of the residency is entirely self-directed, intended to serve as unrestricted time for writers in the crucial, early stages of their careers.
