In an effort to support and uplift Palestinian voices, Sundress Publications is announcing two new opportunities for writers of Palestinian descent.
For Summer 2024, the Sundress Academy for the Arts will support one fully-funded residency week of Palestinian writers in Knoxville, TN. These residencies are designed to give artists time and space to complete their creative projects in a quiet and productive environment.
Beginning on November 1st, we will also be opening up a new grant, the Sundress Microgrant for Palestinian Writers. This grant will award $500, a slot in Sundress’s reading series, a one-week residency at the Sundress Academy for the Arts in Knoxville, TN, and the potential for publication to one writer of Palestinian descent with a chapbook or full-length in progress to support the completion of said project.
For both opportunities, projects must be in English, though translation projects are welcome and encouraged.
