Each year the Center for Mark Twain Studies offers ten Quarry Farm Fellowships to scholars working on academic and creative projects related to Mark Twain and his circle. Fellows have the unique opportunity to reside in the house at Quarry Farm where Twain wrote many of his most famous works, including Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. At Quarry Farm they will find a robust research library,  idyllic natural surroundings, and the seclusion which many scholars have, much like Twain, found conducive to writing. Fellows also have full library privileges through the Mark Twain Archive at Elmira College and are a short drive from additional special collections at Cornell.   

 

In 2020 we will offer 3 month-long residencies, each with a $1500 honorarium and 7 two-week residencies, each with a $1000 honorarium. At least one month-long and two two-week fellowships will be reserved for emerging scholars, including graduate students and contingent faculty. One fellowship is reserved for a creative writer. 

 

Several C19 members have been Quarry Farm Fellows in recent years. You can learn more about the fellowships, as well as read testimonials, by visiting MarkTwainStudies.org. Applications for 2020 are due by November 30, 2019. 

 

Please feel free to contact myself or Dr. Joseph Lemak (jlemak@elmira.edu) if you have any questions.
