The National Endowment for the Arts recently announced the 2015 Creative Writing Fellowships in Prose. Congratulations to all recipients of this prestigious literary honor, but particularly to Lenore Myka of Somerville, Celeste Ng of Cambridge, Paul Harding of Topsfield, and Joy Ladin of Hadley (also a past MCC awardee in Fiction/Creative Nonfiction). And speaking of past MCC awardees, congratulations to Mehdi Okasi, a 2014 Fellow who subsequently moved to NY and is also among the new NEA Fellowship awardees.
The grants are $25,000 and support ongoing work in prose.
Well done (and written), all.
