Monroe Fellowship at NOCGS

I am beyond honored to have received one of the 2018 Monroe Fellows Research Grants from the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South at Tulane University, in support of a work of fiction currently underway. This grant will enable me to travel to the region where the book is set twice this year, and enable a deeper understanding and infusion of that landscape into the story. The NOCGS was gracious enough to support the early research for the Hattiesburg book; I’m beyond grateful to their jurors for believing in this current work. More information about NOCGS is on their website.
