The Creative Writing faculty of the Department of English Literature is pleased to announce that there will be TWO Morrell-Potter Summer Stipends in Creative Writing awarded for 2006: to Tiana Pyer-Pereira in poetry, and to Eliza Blair in fiction.

Congratulations to Tiana and Eliza, and indeed to all who shared their intriguing work with us.
