    Applicants who want to be considered for the Kurt Brown Fellowship should submit a general application form, along with a brief (1-2 pages, typed, double-spaced) essay explaining of how you meet the fellowship's criteria and why the fellowship would meaningfully support your pursuit of a degree in Solstice MFA in Creative Writing Program.
