Four full fellowships to attend the DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon, Portugal


A collaboration between Dzanc Books and the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) has made possible four full fellowships for writers of Luso descent from North America to attend DISQUIET in Lisbon in 2019. To be eligible for the fellowship, entrants must be residents of the United States or Canada who have a genealogical link to a Lusophone country. Past winners have included writers with ties to Portugal, Brazil, Cabo Verde, and Goa.

The four winners will receive airfare stipend, accommodations, and full tuition to the 2019 DISQUIET Program in Lisbon (taking place June 23-July 5) and a place in our multi-genre workshop “Writing the Luso Experience” with other writers from Portugal and North America. Runners-up will be offered partial tuition scholarships. See website for full guidelines. There is no fee to apply.
