Applications Now Open for the $15,000 Steinbeck Fellows Program
Applications are currently being accepted for the Steinbeck Fellows Program of San José State University. The program offers emerging writers of any age and background the opportunity to pursue a significant writing project while in residence at SJSU.

The emphasis of the program is on helping writers who have had some success, but not published extensively, and whose promising work would be aided by the financial support and sponsorship of the Martha Heasley Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies and the University’s creative writing program. While the program is named in honour of John Steinbeck, there does not need to be any direct connection between Steinbeck’s works and that of the applicant.

Boulevard’s Short Fiction Contest for Emerging Writers is only open people who have not yet published a book of fiction, poetry or creative non-fiction with a nationally distributed press. Stories may be up to 8000 words and must be previously unpublished. The 2017 contest was won by Caitlin Campbell for her story ‘Quarterway House’.
