Are you an Arkansas-based writer who has been commissioned by a commercial American publisher to write a full-length work of fiction, poetry or non-fiction?

Oh you are? Excellent. Could you also use $10,000?

I thought so. Well then you’d better get on over to the William F. Laman Public Libary‘s website and throw your hat in the ring for the 2012 Laman Library Writers Fellowship.


The deadline for submissions is Nov. 15.

Past winners include Grif Stockley and Kevin Brockmeier.
