Kundiman Fellowship deadline approaches!

Asian American emerging poets, apply to be a Kundiman fellow!

The online application deadline is Sat., Feb. 1, 11:59pm EST.

You'll need: $15 and 5-7 pages of poetry, with your name included on each page. Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and a brief paragraph describing what you would like to accomplish at the Kundiman Asian American Poetry Retreat. If you're accepted, the non-refundable tuition fee is $375. But, Room and Board are free to accepted Fellows. The Kundiman Asian American Poetry Retreat is held on Fordham University's Rose Hill Campus located in the Bronx, NYC.

Note: Very few writers from Laos have ever gone through this acclaimed program since it began in 2004. Consider applying. Since 2004, twenty-six fellows have published first books and twenty-five have published chapbooks and they credit Kundiman as being instrumental in their growth as writers.
