Victoria Chang Awarded a Lannan Foundation Residency Fellowship

Victoria Chang, Chair of the MFA in Creative Writing Program was awarded a Lannan Foundation Residency Fellowship for 2020. The Lannan Residency Fellowship provides uninterrupted writing time for poets, writers, essayists, translators, scholars, curators, as well as Native American, environmental and social justice activists.

“I’m looking forward to spending a few weeks in Marfa, Texas in January 2020, to work on some creative writing such as poetry, children’s fiction, or essays,” said Chang.

Since the fall of 2000, more than 350 residency fellows have been housed in Lannan properties in Marfa, Texas, a small, beautiful, high desert ranching town in West Texas. Candidates for the fellowships are recommended to the Foundation by a network of writers, literary scholars, publishers, and editors. Nominators are geographically dispersed and serve anonymously. The final determination of recipients is made by the Foundation’s literary committee.

“I’ve heard a lot about the residency and the fellowship so I can’t wait to attend,” added Chang.

The Lannan Foundation is a family foundation dedicated to cultural freedom, diversity, and creativity through projects that support exceptional contemporary artists and writers, as well as inspired Native activists in rural indigenous communities.
