Camille Dungy receives Guggenheim Fellowship

Professor Dungy teaches with Colorado State University’s English department. Her book Suck on the Marrow received the American Book Award in 2011. She says, “I understand this fellowship to be a starting block for my journey towards a new set of possibilities and artistic discoveries,” she said. “I’ll pause very briefly to celebrate what this means to me and to the communities who have supported my work through the years. Then I’ll start digging in the soil again — and see what starts growing.” Read more about her projects and watch a video of Dungy performing her poetry here:
