Three Fellows Win NEA Grants
Congratulations to VCCA poets Nickole Brown, Henri Cole and Loren Graham, who are among the 42 recipients of the prestigous National Endowment for the Arts grant, awarded annually. The $25,000 award is given to support writing fellowships.
From the NEA: "Literature Fellowships are the Arts Endowment's most direct investment in American creativity, encouraging the production of new work and allowing writers the time and means to write."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
