GRACE PALEY FELLOWSHIP
for a WOMAN WRITER
The Grace Paley Fellowship honors the legacy of the great writer and activist, whose inimitable stories gave lasting life to the immigrants, artists and visionaries of her New York and who believed in all necessary and generous change, as embodied in the title of her first collection, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute. Grace Paley was a master teacher and a member of our founding faculty. She returned to teach and read in Tepoztlán many times before her death in 2007.
The Grace Paley Fellowship is awarded to a woman poet or fiction writer of any age whose work Grace Paley would have encouraged and includes childcare if needed.
