The 2010 Pen Parentis Writing Fellowship for New Parents

One comment

Our friends at Pen Parentis are offering a writing fellowship:

In addition to a full year of promotion, a $1000 prize will be presented to the Pen Parentis Writing Fellow at a public reading of the winning work of fiction in a stunning literary location on September 14, 2010 in Manhattan. Entrants must be the parent of at least one child under 10 years of age, but there are no style or genre limitations on the fiction submitted for consideration.

For complete details on how to enter, visit Pen Parentis.
