The NEA and NC

The National Endowment for the Arts has announced the winners of its 2013 Grant Awards, and the Writingest State is well-represented.

Ansel Elkins and Rachel Richardson, both of Greensboro, and David Rigsbee of Raleigh, who led the poetry workshop at the Network’s 2010 Squire Summer Writing Residency, received literature fellowships for poetry.

In addition, the NEA awarded an Art Works grant in literature to UNC Wilmington’s Lookout Books.

Congratulations to these winners, and thank you to the NEA for continuing to recognize and support writers and writing.
