Fellows and alternates are selected through a competitive, anonymous application process. Out-of-state review panelists make recommendations for selections based solely on a review of work samples. The panel's recommendations are approved by the board of the SC Arts Commission.
Individual artists working in prose, poetry, music performance or music composition are invited to apply for the 2009 Fellowships. The deadline to apply is October 1.
