Applications are open for the Marguerite and Lamar Smith Fellowship for Writers 2022. The Marguerite and Lamar Smith Fellowship for Writers was inspired by McCullers’s experience at the Breadloaf Writer’s Conference in Vermont, especially the Yaddo Arts Colony in Saratoga Springs, New York.

To honor the contribution of these writers’ residences to McCullers’s work, the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians awards fellowships for writers to study in her childhood home in Columbus, Georgia. The fellowships are intended to afford the writers in residence uninterrupted time to focus on their work, free from the distractions of daily life and other professional responsibilities.
