The Emerging Writer Fellowship in Hybrid Writing


The Emerging Writer Fellowship in Hybrid Writing offers editorial support, guidance, and mentorship to previously unpublished writers who demonstrate exceptional promise in hybrid and cross-genre writing. The fellow will work alongside the Brink design and editorial team to prepare their piece for publication. The virtual fellowship will take place over a period of four months in the fall and will provide the following:


One-on-one developmental editing alongside a Brink editor with an emphasis on developing the innovative hybrid aspects of the selected piece 


Advice and guidance on career development via the submission and publication process


Publication in a print issue of Brink, providing a significant and respected publication credit 


Participation in an online reading along with the winner of the Brink Literary Journal Award for Hybrid Writing 


Five copies of the journal issue in which the winning submission appears




The fellowship is open to all writers and artists who identify their work as hybrid or cross-genre in nature or who are interested in the process of learning how to hybridize their work in a readable, creative manner.
