MFA Faculty Kao Kalia Yang and Shara McCallum Awarded 2023 Guggenheim Foundation Fellowships

The MFA in Writing is honored to announce that two members of our faculty, nonfiction writer Kao Kalia Yang and poet Shara McCallum, have been awarded 2023 Guggenheim Foundation Fellowships.

Both writers have been teaching in the program for a number of years, have brought powerful ideas and lessons to our students and Writers Conference participants, and both have been instrumental in the program's diversity efforts, leading sessions of our Strata Masterclass for Writers of Color.

Congratulations to both writers, and thanks for making our program and our students a part of your lives.
