At Oak Spring, we recognize the value of supporting writers in a variety of disciplines. Our Writing Awards, including our Oak Spring Fellows and Women Writers in Residence Program, aim to support plant science and conservation practitioners needing time to advance writing projects, as well as visionary women writers with ideas and stories to share.
We are now accepting applications for our 2020 Writing Awards, including our Oak Spring Fellows program and our Women Writers in Residence Program. Scroll down for more details on each of these programs.
