Since the National Endowment for the Arts has officially announced its 2013 list of recipients for its $25,000 Creative Writing (Poetry) Fellowship Grant, BOA is proud to announce poet Ryan Teitman as one such recipient. Teitman's first poetry collection Litany for the City won him the 10th Annual A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize (selected by Jane Hirshfield from more than 600 manuscripts), and was published by BOA this past spring. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) was established by Congress in 1965 as an independent agency of the federal government. The NEA supports artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities, and extends its work through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector. Congratulations, Ryan!
