We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Gotham is creating opportunities to welcome more people of color into the world of writing.
MANUSCRIPT TO MARKET FELLOWSHIP
The Gotham “Manuscript-to-Market” Fellowship is open to people of color who have completed a book manuscript (or nonfiction book proposal) and are ready to go to market with their book. Three fellowships will be offered every year.
Each fellowship includes:
Acceptance is open to all people of color and based solely on the merit of your book project. At least one spot will be rewarded to a Black writer.
Once accepted, Gotham will do a consultation to determine the timing and arrangement of your fellowship.
This fellowship does not guarantee that winners will get a book published, but it does help them get the best possible shot.
