Every three years, the MacColl Johnson fellowships honor three local writers, each of whom receives $25,000 grants to further their writing. This year’s winners, selected from nearly one hundred applicants by an out of state panel, are Mary-Kim Arnold, Luisa C. Murillo, and Chrysanthemum Tran. They’ll all be reading along with three finalists: Christopher Johnson, Shey Rivera, and S Tourjee. Expect a wide array of subject matter and delivery from these writers, all of whom work with poetry (although not necessarily exclusively). Tran, for instance, is a teaching artist for Providence Poetry Slam whose work explores “the intersections of Vietnamese diaspora and transgender dysphoria”, while Bolivian-American poet Murillo’s first book will feature poems written in English, Spanish and Quechua.
