    The Black Fire—This Time (BFTT) Virtual Summer Fellowship from Aquarius Press and Willow Books fosters the careers of poets and writers at all stages of development through independent study, readings, Q&A sessions with prominent authors and sponsored prizes. Fellows are provided exclusive access to the Black Fire — This Time Digital Collection, which contains cultural gems from the Black Arts Movement along with an extended set of hard-to-find and out-of-print works not found in the print edition.

    From June to August, BFTT Summer Fellows will work remotely on the project of their choice. Projects are self-paced at any stage of development, from literature reviews to works-in-progress to full manuscripts. The fellowship is open to poets, writers, playwrights, teaching artists and healing arts practitioners addressing the myriad aspects of the Black Arts Movement (past, present and future).

    Requirements: Fellows work independently but attend weekly check-ins (approx. 60 minutes), where they receive announcements, network, enjoy readings and Q&A sessions with guest speakers and schedule critique sessions. Fellows will submit a portfolio sample of work completed during the fellowship. Select projects will be eligible for sponsored prizes (TBA).

    For more information visit the BFTT Submittable page. May 31, 2022 application deadline.
