The Mary Wood Fellowship at Washington College is awarded biannually to an emerging female writer—in poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction—who has published one book.
The Fellowship enables female creative writing students at Washington College to work with and learn from successful female writers like Laura van den Berg, Hannah Tinti, and Irina Reyn, who spend several days on campus. The Mary Wood Fellow spends approximately five days at Washington College, during which she holds individual conferences with select female undergraduate creative writers. The Fellow also gives a public reading and a craft talk. The Fellowship includes a $2500 stipend, overnight accommodations, and travel. Eastern Shore author Mary Wood, whose support makes the fellowship possible, is a ’68 graduate of the College and a former member of its Board of Visitors and Governors. Interested writers should send a cover letter and copy of their book to Director Jehanne Dubrow by March 15.
