For the last few years, we have invited former alum to join us as paid readers for an application season. This has allowed us an opportunity to further engage with our alum,-whom we love!- as well as open up our admission panel to a broader set of readers with a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and passions. Through this collaboration, we have seen our programs and community expand in what are thoughtful and meaningful ways.
With that spirit in mind, we are excited to announce a new direction for this program: The Tin House Workshop Reading Fellowship!
This 12-month paid fellowship, which runs from August through July each year, is designed to provide fellows with an opportunity to gain insight into arts administration, sharpen their critical reading skills, and help shape our workshop and residency programs. The Reading Fellow’s responsibilities will include reading, voting, and awarding scholarships for various workshop programs and helping select our Residents. Through this program, Fellows will also be given opportunities to enrich their own writing practices through online classes, lectures, and meetings with Tin House Books staff. The fellowship will culminate with a week-long writing residency at the Tin House Summer Workshop.
Please note this fellowship is currently only open to Workshop and Residency Alum.
Feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com with any questions.
