We're a little late spreading the word about this, although I'm sure many of you reading are already well aware. The 2009 NEA literary grant winners have been announced! And we're very excited to see a number of Indiana Review contributors on this list, some from way back in the day. We saw Xochiquetzal Candelaria (23.2), Bob Hicok (30.2,28.2,26.1,24.2, 19.1), Julia Kasdorf (18.1), Michael McGriff (31.1), Orlando Ricardo Menes (30.1,25.1, 19.1), Aimee Nezhukumatathil (31.1, 30.1,27.1, 26.1), and Jane Springer (30.1). (I hope I didn't miss any of our former contributors!)
Congratulations to our contributors, as well as to all the NEA grant winners.
