    The WLA has provided an invaluable intellectual home for me as I have worked to forge a professional identity over the course of my time in graduate school.

Editorial Fellowships at Western American Literature

History

From 1997 to 2013, WLA’s scholarly journal Western American Literature offered graduate students enrolled in the graduate program at Utah State University a competitive stipend and the opportunity for training in the field of academic publishing. Two full editorial fellowships were available every year. See what our former fellows are up to now.

In 2013, the journal moved to the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. We hope that fellowship opportunities will become available again in the near future.
