Overview: The Undocupoets Fellowship annually grants TWO $500 fellowships, with no strings attached, to poets who are currently or who were formerly undocumented in the United States to help defray the cost of poetry-related submission fees.
Submission Process: Please submit up to 10 pages of poetry, with no more than one poem per page, per individual. In addition, please include a cover letter with a bio and brief description of your current work or manuscript-in-progress.
At least one of the two fellowships awarded will be given to LGBTQ undocumented or previously undocumented poets per an agreement with Sibling Rivalry Press. Please indicate on your bio if you identify as LGBTQ.
While no single fellowship recipient will receive more than $500 on any given year, fellowships can be awarded to the same individual for multiple years.
Deadline: 11:59 PM PST, January 15, 2020
