Toto Funds the Arts, in partnership with Sangam House, is delighted to announce a two-week residency fellowship for writers at Sangam House for the winter session 2016.
The fellowship covers board and lodge for a two-week period at the Sangam House International Writers' Residency located outside Bangalore. (For more information about Sangam House, please visit www.sangamhouse.org)
The recipient of the fellowship will have the opportunity to interact with writers from around the world and build a solid and influential network of personal and professional relationships that can deepen their own work.
The fellowship is open to anyone who has either won or been short-listed for the TOTO Creative Writing Awards since their inception in 2006. Please note that the fellowship does not include a stipend or cover costs of transport/travel to and from Sangam House.
Applications from the following genres of writing are welcome: poetry, fiction, drama, and non-fiction.
Your application must include:
- a one-page statement describing what you intend to work on while at Sangam House
- a recent writing sample of not more than 5,000 words.
Applications should reach Sarita Vellani at email@example.com no later than 16 August 2016. If you have any questions, write to the email address provided or call +919880623357.
All applications must be sent by email with a covering note (which mentions your date of birth, your current occupation, your phone number and your current address) and two attachments, one each for your statement of purpose and your writing sample.
The name of the recipient of the fellowship—to be determined by Sangam House—will be announced in the second week of September 2016.
