I am starting the application process for the Fulbright, Marshall, Luce, and Rhodes. All in England. Anyone have any suggestions or tips?

I'll write a little more. I'm a humor writer, I'm from NJ (which I think is one of the most, if not the most competitive state in the country for these things), I run long distance, I've been published in some fairly reputable publications.
I realize my chances for the Rhodes are probably slim to none, given that they take 32 people. Basically, I'm looking to take a Masters in England in something writing related, so that I can work on a novel. I don't want to pay, and since I've never traveled at all, I think it would be cool to go out of the country to see something else.
Has anyone dealt with any of these applications or know how to go about it? My school is fairly good, but they seem to have lots of applicants, so individual attention is not high on their list.
Any help would be wonderful, indeed.
