Visiting fellows join a community of creative writers and scholars in a thriving literary scene in Las Vegas and on the campus of UNLV, supported by individuals and groups who share our commitment of bringing writers and the literary imagination into the heart of public life.

We welcome writers during the UNLV academic calendar between August and May. All fellowships include a downtown apartment, situated above The Writer’s Block at The Lucy and an office at Black Mountain Institute’s headquarters.

BMI fellowships rely on the generosity of individuals and foundations to provide vital support perennially to writers and to immerse them in the Nevada landscape.

Applications for the 2022-2023 cycle will open on July 1, 2021.
