Applications have been re-opened for SLS Kenya 2018. Click here to apply.

We ask for a $150 USD deposit and a writing sample (10-15 pages of poetry; no more than 20-25 double-spaced pages of prose) to complete your application. (Note that if you entered the 2018 literary contest, you need not upload a writing sample).

Fellowships received by former contest participants over the last 4 years can be applied to SLS programs this year. Previous SLS participants are also eligible to receive a 25% tuition waiver.

Your privacy is important to us. We will never rent, sell or disclose your information to any third parties.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018!
