Colgate Writers' Conference - Fees and Fellowships Skip Navigation

Fees and Fellowships

Colgate values its conference enough to support it generously. Everyone who is invited to participate is effectively the recipient of a fellowship.
June 11–17, 2017
More, the university makes available additional fellowships to those who most need them. Why? Because it is proud of what the conference and its people have accomplished (and shared through their publications), and so it is proud to share its resources with the conference as well.

Fellowships and Discounts

Fellowships

Fellowships are available to help some participants defray the cost of attendance. Because funds are limited and we try to help as many applicants as possible, we limit fellowship awards to $100 - $500 for the poetry and short fiction workshops or $100 - $600 for the creative nonfiction and novel intensive workshops.
