The Ellen Meloy Award: $5,000 for Creative Non-Fiction
Writers are also “sent out to the desert to write.”


The Ellen Meloy Fund for Desert Writers grants one $5,000 award in the spring of each year. Only literary or creative nonfiction proposals will be considered. No fiction or poetry proposals will be reviewed.
The Fund supports writing that combines an engaging individual voice, literary sensibility, imagination and intellectual rigor to bring new perspectives and deeper meaning to the body of desert literature. All applications will be reviewed through a peer-panel process.
Considerations in the selection process will be:
the writing sample’s artistic excellence and desert literacy,
the proposal’s strength,
the biography’s ability to demonstrate a history and future of writing and desert experience.

Financial and other kinds of need, the body of past work, geographic location of the applicant, academic career, professional reputation, etcetera, are not criteria for receipt of a grant.
They do NOT fund:
Individuals who have received an Ellen Meloy Grant within the last five years
Poetry or fiction proposals
