#Muse18 Preview


We at GrubStreet are thrilled to offer numerous partial need-based scholarships–for general audiences, for writers doing great work in the literary community, and for writers from historically marginalized backgrounds. No previous publication or MFA required, and there is no submission fee.

If you are eligible, we welcome you to apply for multiple scholarships by submitting the form multiple times. At the end of the application, we’ll ask if you’d like us to draw your materials from any previous applications, or simply use the same ones.

The deadline for all scholarship applications is Sunday, October 22nd at midnight EST. We will send out notifications to everyone by November 6th. For more information about the specific scholarships we offer, visit our scholarship page.

GrubStreet is now calling for sponsors and exhibitors to plan their presence at Muse 2018. Doing so gets your organization’s name and info in front of 800+ committed writers and publishers who are actively seeking new services, products, and opportunities.

Attendance at The Muse and the Marketplace has grown 15% each year since 2009, and now draws more than 800 participants over three days of programming. Sponsorship of this event gets your business name in front of writing and publishing industry innovators and leaders, as well as serious authors seeking author-centric services and continuing education.

To learn more, contact Sonya Larson at sonya@grubstreet.org or visit our sponsorship page.



GrubStreet is now accepting proposals for Teaching Scholars from all over the country. We are looking for writers, editors, agents, publicists, and literary industry professionals with a compelling topic to present at our conference for aspiring and emerging fiction and non-fiction writers. Previous Teaching Scholar session topics have included the pros and cons of publishing with a small press, writing the non-western past, voice in historical fiction, and many other topics not widely covered at most literary conferences.

Accepted presenters receive full-weekend tuition to the entire conference and invitations to presenter parties. Please note that we are not able to compensate for travel and accommodations.

For more information, and to apply, see this this online application form, due Monday, October 9th, 2017.
