1st Michael Dennis Browne Fellowship Recipient

Image of Alex GrantSecond year MFA candidate Alex Grant has been named as the first recipient of the Michael Dennis Browne Fellowship, created in honor of the long-time English professor who retired last spring. The summer Fellowship is to be awarded annually by faculty consensus to a poetry student in the first or second year of the Creative Writing Program, based on the progress the student is making in the Program and the achievement and promise of the work. There is no submission process. The Creative Writing Faculty noted in the announcement that Grant is "setting a bold standard, seriously pursuing novelties in voice and narrative matter, using a language that extends certain literary traditions while at the same time laying down hot new tracks. His poetry is ripe, rich and ambitious." Grant is also a musician. He is a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University where he majored in Recording Industry Production and Technology. His writing has appeared or is forthcoming in The Scrambler, Forklift OH, and Gently Read Lit. He grew up in Carthage, Tennessee. Congratulations!
