The JIAS Writing Fellowships 2024 for Creative Writers
The JIAS Writing Fellowships 2024 for Creative Writers is an international program designed to develop the work of established and emerging writers from around the world.
From the beginning of February to the end of May every year, the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study hosts a group of amazing creative writers and scholars from diverse disciplines as Writing Fellows. Every Writing Fellow concentrates on his/her individual project while benefiting from interacting with other Writing Fellows and from the community of scholars and writers from the universities in Johannesburg and Gauteng in general.
