The Adina Talve-Goodman Fellowship is for an Emerging Writer of Fiction
Author: Edit Team
October 1, 2020
Sponsored by One Story and the Talve-Goodman family, this educational fellowship is for an emerging writer of fiction who has not been to an MFA program, and who hasn’t published a book yet. The fellowship has no application fee, and provides a year-long mentorship with One Story, access to all of our online and in-person classes, a stipend, and a manuscript review (by author and editor Hannah Tinti) at the end of the year.
For this fellowship we are seeking writers whose work speaks to issues and experiences related to inhabiting bodies of difference. This means writing that explores being in a body marked by difference, oppression, violence, or exclusion; often through categories of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, religion, illness, disability, trauma, migration, displacement, dispossession, or imprisonment.
This fellowship is organized in honor of Adina Talve-Goodman, One Story’s former managing editor, who died from cancer at age 31. She was a social activist and cared deeply about making the world a better place.
