The Gotham “Manuscript-to-Market” Scholarship 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 scholarships will be offered every year.
Each scholarship 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 scholarship.
This scholarship does not guarantee that winners will get a book published, but it does help them get the best possible shot.
Applications will be accepted June 1 – August 15.
