Fellows also have an opportunity to teach a one hour special topics class at Sewanee, for which they are payed $500.

Applications open January 15, and the deadline is March 15. Fellows must have books in print by the time of the Conference in order to apply and can’t have attended the Conference as a fellow in the same genre before.
