“I have fallen in love with the imagination. And if you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere, and it can do anything.” 
— Alice Walker


The Gotham Creative Writing Scholarship is open to people of color who have an interest in creative writing—any type of writing, any level of experience. All we ask is the desire to write creatively. Three scholarships will be offered every year.

Each scholarship includes: 

Acceptance is open to all people of color. At least one spot will be rewarded to a Black applicant. 

Once accepted, Gotham will do a consultation to help guide the writer with their initial course selection. 

There is no time limit on when all the courses must be completed. 

Applications will be accepted September 1 – November 15.
