Grace Paley Fellowships in Mexico


The Grace Paley Fellowship at Under the Volcano honors the legacy of the great writer and activist Grace Paley, whose inimitable stories gave lasting life to the immigrants, artists and visionaries of her New York and who believed in all necessary and generous change, as embodied in the title of her first collection, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute. Grace Paley was a master teacher and a member of our founding faculty, who returned to teach and read in Tepoztl├ín many times before her death in 2007.
This fellowship covers participation in any of our English-language master classes, the two-week follow-up extension residency, 24 nights accommodation in Tepoztlán, RT travel to and from Mexico City from the US and help with childcare expenses if applicable.
The Grace Paley Fellowship will be awarded to a woman writer of any age whose work Grace Paley would have encouraged.
