The Writing Seminars is happy to announce that Bruce Snider received a 2023 Literature Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The National Endowment for the Arts awards Literature Fellowship awards every year in creative writing and translation. These fellowships represent the agency’s most direct investment in American creativity. The goal of the fellowships program is to encourage the production of new work and allow writers the time and means to write. Many recipients have gone on to receive the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry and Fiction. Most received their fellowships before any major national award, usually at least a decade earlier.
