Community Partnerships

Students engage in a social justice mission focused on inclusive advocacy in the literary arts.

Community Fellowship Partners

We work with community partners to provide fellowships, internships and professional development opportunities for our students. This off-campus partnership network supports students who are model inclusivity and have a high potential to benefit from this experience.

Lambda Literary

Lamda Literary

The Lambda Literary Fellowship includes a publishing internship in the amount of $2,000. This award is given to a distinguished candidate who is aligned with Lambda Literary's mission of believing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer literature is fundamental to the preservation of our culture, and that LGBTQ lives are affirmed when these stories are written, published, and read.

From current Lamba Literary Fellow Marrion Johnson, Fiction '21:

I found that the Lambda Literary internship not only provided me with a built-in literary community of aligned thinkers to build with, but also the space to explore my creativity and the stories I truly wanted to tell. The folks at Lambda always encouraged me to follow my instincts and, most importantly, held me accountable, which only helped me to take my own writing seriously and produce work I could truly feel proud of.
