Get paid to write in Paris …sweet dreams are made of this…

parisThe American Library in Paris is offering English- speaking writers of any nationality the opportunity to work in Paris for a month or longer with a Visiting Fellowship. Writers should be working on a book project, either fiction or non-fiction, which resonates with the Library’s Franco-American tradition and interests. As part of the fellowship, the library will connect the visiting writer to resources and people in Paris that could be helpful to his or her project.

Fellows receive a stipend of US$5000 to assist with travel and housing costs. In return fellows are expected to present a talk at the library, participate in a members-only dinner, appropriately acknowledge the Library in any publication outcomes resulting from the fellowship project and participate in other library-related activities.

The American Library in Paris is a private, non-profit English-language library located in the 7th arrondissement. It was founded in 1920 and Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein were both early patrons.

Autumn Fellowships will take place between 2 October and 17 November 2017. Spring fellowships will take place between 12 March and 29 April 2018.

Applications close on Tuesday 14 February 2017 (how appropriate for the city of love).  For further information visit the American Library in Paris website.

Good writing and good luck
