"I want all women to use their voices - to be loud and audacious; to be heard, to be recognized, their words seen and read"

- Amy Ferris

The Amy Ferris Fellowship will financially enable qualified women writers to be able to attend Cape Cod Story Summit this October

The deadline for applications has been extended to August 15th, 2020 at midnight PDT. Please make sure you upload your writing sample along with your application.

To enter, please go to the application form on this page, fill it out, include a writing sample of 1500 words, and enter. Please note that your personal story is measured at equal weight with your writing sample. Please be thoughtful and expressive in the writing of your personal story. It matters!
