The Kenyon Review Editor David H. Lynn writes: “In our enduring effort to support authors in the early stages of promising careers, I am delighted to announce a new model for the Kenyon Review Fellowships. Beginning in the autumn of 2012, two outstanding writers, one poet and one prose author, will be invited to join us in Gambier, Ohio, in each two-year cycle. Our expectation is that candidates will have completed an MFA or PhD. Selected in a rigorous process that will evaluate their gifts as writers as well as teachers, KR Fellows will pursue a significant creative project in consultation with a mentor. They will also each teach one course in creative writing per year, also mentored by faculty of the Kenyon College English Department. In addition, they will work closely with the staff of The Kenyon Review, gaining editorial and production experience, from letterpress to Internet.”
The Fellowship is open for application October 1 – December 1, 2011.
