Six writ­ers re­ceived the 2018–2019 Wis­con­sin In­sti­tute for Cre­ative Writ­ing Fel­low­ships in Po­etry and Fic­tion.

Each fel­low re­ceives a stipend of $38,000 plus ben­e­fits, and teaches one cre­ative writ­ing workshop at the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin each se­mes­ter and gives one pub­lic read­ing. The nine-month fel­low­ships pro­vide time, space, and an in­tel­lec­tual com­mu­nity for po­ets and fic­tion writ­ers work­ing on a first or sec­ond book. Ap­pli­cants must hold an MFA or PhD in cre­ative writ­ing and must have pub­lished no more than one book. (SEE DEAD­LINES.)
