Announcing Our New Voices Fellow for the Summer of 2018!
We are so pleased to share with you all that Susan Yanos has been chosen as our New Voices Fellow.
She started writing poetry in her 50s, and her work displays an exceptional closeness to contemporary poetry, our collective movements with language and our shared imagistic memories. Susan writes with bite, energy, and surprising generosity—we are sincerely honored to be working with her.
Susan will receive a $500 grant to go towards submission services, editorial guidance on her work, the opportunity to read for Frontier and join our community, and also publication of her poetry or prose.
Thank you to everyone who applied, and please keep a lookout for the Winter Fellowship for indigenous writers to open up on August 1st.
Susan Yanos has been a professor of writing and literature, pastoral minister, spiritual director, and editor.
