ARTIST CAREER DEVELOPMENT GRANT RECEIVED

This $5,000 award—jointly funded by the state of South Dakota and the National Endowment for the Arts—is “designed to support emerging artists committed to advancing their work and careers by providing funding to produce new work.”

SD Arts Council allocates $1.26 million in grants

These funds will importantly help alleviate financial pressure, allowing me to more quickly push various projects toward conclusion.

Deep gratitude goes out to the NEA, and, as well, the South Dakota Arts Council.

Over the years we have expanded the scope and breadth of our journal to feature work by writers from more than 50 countries.”
