Shubnum Khan Wins 2018 Octavia Butler Fellowship and Jack Jones Literary Arts Retreat in the U.S.
05 Jul 2018
Congratulations to PEN SA member Shubnum Khan, who has won the 2018 Octavia Butler Fellowship as part of a Jack Jones Literary Arts retreat in New Mexico, U.S.A.
As Shubnum explains:
It’s a retreat exclusively for women of colour. You have masterclasses from leading women in the field of literature who will help you with your writing and with publishing, agents etc. and get time to work on your manuscript. There are different fellowships and I’ve received the 2018 Octavia Butler Fellowship for my manuscript in progress. About 500 people applied and 25 women writers were selected.
More information about the retreat may be found at the Jack Jones Literary Arts website.
