Since 1985, the Whiting Foundation has supported creative writing through the Whiting Awards, given annually to ten emerging writers in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama to allow them to devote themselves fully to writing for a year. The awards, of $50,000 each, are based on early accomplishment and the promise of great work to come. Meet four of this year’s winners in Poetry as they share their work and discuss their craft.
Note: Unfortunately, Diannely Antigua, originally scheduled to appear on this panel, is no longer able to attend the Festival.
