award, reading, conversation

September 22, 2022

Every two years, The Seattle Foundation at the University of Washington awards the Maxine Cushing Gray Endowed Libraries Visiting Writers Fellowship to “an established prose writer, poet, playwright, screenwriter, journalist or critic, who is a writer of sustained achievement and whose intent is serious and talent noteworthy with roots in the Pacific Northwest.” The award is named in honor of Maxine Cushing Gray, who was a prominent Northwest critic and editor.

Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest was named the 2022 Maxine Cushing Grey Distinguished Writers Fellow, and on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, at 6:00pm, she will present an online reading to be followed by a conversation with UW Tacoma professor Danica Miller, with an opportunity for audience questions afterward.
