Dancing in the Rain is a fellowship for writers of mid-grade or young adult (YA) literature. Candidates should be working on a chapter book that provides inspiration and hope for those struggling with the hardships and challenges that life often metes out. The successful application will demonstrate insight, honesty, literary merit, and the likelihood of publication. Prior publication is not a requirement. The deadline is midnight CST on Monday, June 27, 2022. The fellowship winner will receive a one-week residency at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Residencies must be completed by the end of the year 2023.
