Initiated in 1998, Stadler Fellowships offer a recent MFA (or creative writing MA) graduate in poetry the opportunity to receive professional training in arts administration and literary editing. Stadler Fellowships are designed to balance the development of professional skills with time to complete a first book of poems. Stadler Fellows assist for twenty hours each week in the administration of the Stadler Center for Poetry and/or in the editing of West Branch, Bucknell's nationally distinguished literary journal. Fellows also work as staff members and instructors in the Bucknell Seminar for Undergraduate Poets in June. The Fellowship stipend is $20,000. In addition, each Fellow is provided health insurance, office space in the Stadler Center, and housing. Depending on circumstances, Fellows are either housed in a furnished apartment in the Poet's Cottage or provided with a stipend to seek housing on their own in Lewisburg.

Several recent Stadler Fellows have published books or received other honors subsequent to their fellowships, including Will Schutt (Westerly, Yale Prize for Younger Poets), Betsy Wheeler (Loud Dreaming in a Quiet Room, National Poetry Review Press), Jamaal May (Hum, Beatrice Hawley Award, Alice James Books), Carolina Ebeid (You Ask Me to Talk About the Interior, Noemi Press), and Justin Boening (Not On the Last Day, But On the Very Last; National Poetry Series, Milkweed ).

Please monitor this space for information on the 2017-18 Stadler Fellowships. We will conduct a search only in case of a vacancy.
