Oh, how I wish it were me! Congratulations to the 2013 Kresge Artist Fellows in the Literary and Visual Arts. With your combined talents and the generosity of the Kresge Foundation, may we keep the arts alive and well in Detroit and beyond.

“Announced Tuesday by the Troy-based Kresge Foundation, the no-strings-attached $25,000 grants are among the country’s most generous for individual artists,” states the Detroit Free Press. “This year, the recipients included nine in the literary arts and nine in the visual arts. Two independent panels of five professionals judged more than 700 applicants.” Lucky buggers.

For those of us who didn’t make the cut this year, there’s always next fall. Chin up and keep on writing…

*Support your local bookstores, libraries and universities. It matters.
