Lisa Page Literary Education Fellowship

PEN/Faulkner is seeking a fiction writer with teaching experience for its newly-expanded Lisa Page Literary Education Fellowship. The Fellowship, which is named after a former long-time PEN/Faulkner board member, is a one-year, part-time opportunity—potentially renewable for a second year—to join the PEN/Faulkner staff and work with DC public school educators and students in grades 3-12.

Our Education Programs

PEN/Faulkner believes that every child, no matter their background or circumstances, should have access to rich literary opportunities. We offer four education programs—Writers in Schools, Nuestras Voces, Writing Workshops, and Writers in Residence—to empower the next generation of readers and writers.
