David Shumate Receives Creative Writing Fellowship - 12/11/2008

David Shumate, assistant professor of English and poet-in-residence at Marian College, recently received a creative writing fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

In order to apply for the fellowship, the writer must have published a book of at least 48 poems or have a strong record of publishing in journals and reviews.

In January 2008, Shumate published his second book of pose poetry, The Floating Bridge. See related article.
