Emerging Artist Award: Literature

“I had just finished my second MFA in Fiction at Boston University, and didn’t yet have my Visiting Professor position at the University of Hong Kong’s MFA program, and so the $1,500 grant came as a great and surprising windfall. It allowed me to get through that summer after graduating, knowing that I’d have the funds to support myself, at least for an extra month or so, as I continued to work on my novel, WHAT IS VISIBLE. And so huge thanks and gratitude to the Foundation for continuing to provide such grants to emerging artists. You really help, where it counts!”
