Undocupoets promotes the work of poets who are currently or formerly undocumented in the United States and raises consciousness about the structural barriers we face in the literary community. We believe in supporting all poets, regardless of immigration status.

Undocupoet Fellows

Fellowship Overview

The Undocupoets Fellowship annually grants two $500 fellowships, with no strings attached, to poets who are currently or who were formerly undocumented in the United States. Through our continued partnership with Catapult, Fellows will also receive a scholarship for a six-week workshop (or its equivalent value toward other Catapult classes).

Our Team


The Undocupoets Fellowship, in partnership with Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is funded by grants from the Amazon Literary Partnership (ALP) and Academy of American Poets Poetry Fund, the Literary Arts Emergency Fund, and through private donations.
