Commonwealth Reading Series

The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) is honored to present fellows and finalists from MCC’s Artist Fellowship Program in the 2014 Commonwealth Reading Series.

Every two years, MCC awards grants to some of the most exciting and talented writers and poets in the Commonwealth. Since its inception 40 years ago, the fellowship has been awarded to many writers who have risen to national and international prominence.
