Fellowship deadline is fast approaching

Tick, tock, tick, tock...

The clock is counting down.

Friday, June 18, is the postmark deadline for the 2011 Wyoming Arts Council creative writing fellowships in creative nonfiction. If you're in Cheyenne or just visiting, you may drop off your application at the WAC offices, 2320 Capitol Avenue (right across the street from the Capitol Building) by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 18.

Up to three winners will be chosen, each receiving a $3,000 award plus a $500 travel stipend to participate in the fellowship reading at the Equality State Book Festival in Casper on Sept. 24, 2010.

Judge for this year's competition is author and editor Lee Gutkind, founded of Creative Nonfiction magazine. Lee will travel to Casper to participate in the fellowship reading and to be a panelist in a session about creative nonfiction.
