PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Rhode Island Foundation is offering $25,000 fellowships to aspiring writers who want to spend a year working on their craft.

The Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/1IdE1N3 ) reports that writers have until Aug. 7 to apply for a grant from the Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowship Fund.

The fellowships are intended to help writers concentrate on their creative process, focus on personal or professional development, explore new directions and expand their body of work.

Applicants must have been Rhode Island residents for at least one year prior to the deadline. Students who are in high school or pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree are not eligible. Writers who have advanced levels of career achievement also cannot apply.

Applicants will be judged on the quality of their original work.
