This two-year fellowship offers an artist in the field of artist books, publication arts and/or printmaking the opportunity to work at Black Rock Press and participate in all aspects of the activities of the press, both its academic curriculum and its publishing and outreach practices. Fellows receive full-time work and the facilities to continue their artistic pursuits while gaining experience in the field of publication and building a community. Culminating the two-year fellowship, the fellow will participate in the Black Rock Press Parley Project.
Book Arts Fellowship
The purpose of this fellowship is to give emerging artists the opportunity to work at Black Rock Press, and gain experience at an established academic book and publication arts program, which conducts a range of activities within the field of artist books, fine press printing, bookmaking, and the publication arts. Fellows will have the chance to participate in all aspects of the activities of the Press and the curricular program. In turn, we will benefit from new ideas and techniques the fellow would bring, along with the work they will contribute.
Deadline for submission is Monday, February 3, 2023

Working in collaboration with another person or entity on the campus, the fellow designs a project based on this outreach.
