The Illinois Arts Council reinstated their individual artist fellowships this year and the lucky recipients get $15,000 to do what they will. I received an email this week letting me know I would not be one of those recipients. They posted that they were reopening grant submissions 2 weeks before the deadline, so there wasn't much time to pull things together, but I'm glad I tried! This just means that MacArthur is that much closer right? HAHAHA.
BUT, there's a nice little interview with Dzanc authors over at Prick of the Spindle here: Writer Round-Up.
And The Millions was kind enough to feature A Different Bed Every Time on its Most Anticipated: The Great Second-Half 2014 Book Preview.
