2017 Fellowships

2017 Author Fellow

  • Kathryn Heyman will develop her forthcoming memoir Words to Live By with the support of this fellowship. Following a traumatic sexual assault – and a more traumatic trial – at the age of 20, Heyman ran away from her life and ended up lost in the middle of the Timor Sea, with only the tools of fiction to help her reinvent herself and create an authentic life. Words to Live By will bring her story to the page.


Note: There were no Publisher Fellowships awarded in 2017.
