The Larry Levis Stipend was established through the generosity of an anonymous donor and named for a beloved member of the MFA Program faculty. The award is given to support a graduate of the Warren Wilson College MFA Program for Writers who is completing his/her first book. The Levis Stipend alternates between awards for poetry and for fiction, and the 2015 award will be made to a poet. The annual stipend is determined by the income produced by the Levis Fund Endowment during the previous year. This year’s amount will be $4000.
Submissions are currently being accepted until October 15, 2014 Learn how to apply on the Projects and Scholarships page of the Friends of Writers website and any queries or requests for more information should be addressed to Kathy Barham, Levis Fellowship Administrator, Levis@friendsofwriters.org.
