Event History

This is the first year this residency will be operating.

What Makes this event different?

A key component of this unique fellowship is the opportunity to interact with leading artists, scholars, and writers throughout the South. The fellows will have the opportunity to travel in the Southern region to conduct research at cultural and educational institutions, that can help to inform their work and will be critical in the development of their ideas for a collaborative project that expands the understanding of the modern South.

This unique collaborative fellowship program, from Chapman Cultural Center and Hub City Writers Project, is possible by grant funding from the Watson-Brown Foundation. This program is first-of-its-kind and will bring one early-career artist and one early career-writer to Spartanburg, South Carolina, for 9 months of research, teaching, creativity, and travel, that will culminate in a collaborative project informed by the region. This program is geared toward artists and writers who are interested in immersing themselves in the culture of the American South.

The selected fellows will travel throughout the Southeast to conduct research at cultural and educational institutions as they develop their ideas for a collaborative project that expands the understanding of the modern South.

In addition to focusing on their own creative projects, the Southern Studies Fellows will have opportunities and requirements for educational community service in Spartanburg County; these will include regular college and high school classroom visits/lectures, readings, open studios, workshops, and projects affiliated with the host organizations. (Among the educational organizations that have committed to participate are: Wofford College, Converse College, the University of South Carolina Upstate, Spartanburg High School, and Dorman High School.) The fellows will be expected to contribute up to 20 hours per week in the following areas: community service, artist-writer collaboration, and out-of-town travel for project research.

A key component of this unique fellowship is the opportunity to interact with leading scholars, artists, and writers throughout the South. Each fellow will receive funding for 6-10 days of travel in the Southern region to conduct research at cultural and educational institutions.

Additionally, fellows will have ample opportunities to visit with some of the region’s top literary writers and artists through relationships already developed by Hub City and Chapman.

The application deadline is April 30th, 2021.
