The Brown International Writers Project 2018

Deadline: February 15, 2018

The Brown International Writers Project is currently seeking nominations and applications for its one-year fellowship with residency.

The Fellowship is designed to provide sanctuary and support for established creative writers – fiction writers, playwrights, and poets – who are persecuted in their home countries or are actively prevented from pursuing free expression in their literary art.

The Fellow will be a member of a supportive community that includes faculty members and graduate students in Brown’s Department of Literary Arts and the Watson Institute for International Studies, co-sponsors of the Project. The fellowship will be accompanied by a series of lectures, readings and other events that highlight the national artistic and political culture of the writer and address the global issues of human rights and free expression.

Benefits:

It will include

  • a stipend
  • relocation funds,
  • and health benefits.
  • Brown will aid the writer in the visa and relocation process
  • and provide administrative support, equipment and office space on the Brown campus in Providence, Rhode Island.

How to apply:

To apply or to nominate a candidate,

  • send a letter, providing publishing history and explaining need, together with a resume, and if available, a writing sample (preferably in English) of creative work by the candidate to

Literary Arts, Box 1923, Brown University, Providence, RI 02912,

or by email to
