Wardrop Wins NEA Fellowship

It is my great pleasure to announce that Daneen Wardrop is the recipient of a coveted Creative Writing Fellowship in poetry, awarded by the National Endowment of the Arts.  Selected through an anonymous review process, the fellowships encourage the production of new works of literature by allowing writers the time and means to write. The Creative Writing Fellowships alternate annually between poetry and prose. This year, the NEA received 1,063 eligible applications; the 42 poets recommended will each receive a fellowship of $25,000. Please join me in congratulating Daneen on this wonderful success. rju
