Catawba Professor Awarded Regional Artist Project Grant
December 8, 2009
Dr. Janice Fuller, Writer-in-Residence and Professor of English at Catawba College, has been awarded a Regional Artist Project Grant by the Arts & Science Council. The funding is made possible through North Carolina Arts Council, the Blumenthal Endowment, and the Arts Councils of Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Rutherford and York (SC) counties. A panel from the ASC reviewed 67 applications and selected only 20 recipients.
Fuller’s grant is to be used for her to attend a two-week residency in the summer of 2010 at Ragdale, an artist colony near Chicago, to work on her fourth collection of poetry.
One of Fuller's poems "Ellipsis" was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize. The poem first appeared in the Wild Goose Poetry Review.
