Congratulations, Anne!

Often characterized as “midcareer” awards, Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.

Fellowships are awarded through two annual competitions: one open to citizens and permanent residents of the United States and Canada, and the other open to citizens and permanent residents of Latin America and the Caribbean. Candidates must apply to the Guggenheim Foundation in order to be considered in either of these competitions.

The Foundation receives between 3,500 and 4,000 applications each year. Although no one who applies is guaranteed success in the competition, there is no prescreening: all applications are reviewed. Approximately 200 Fellowships are awarded each year.

One thought on “Anne Waldman Awarded 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship in Poetry!”

  1. One of the early accomplishments of Anne Waldman was that she mimeographed, and hand-cranked out, a large part of the first writers of the Beat movement that no one wanted to publish. Without her dedication and hard work much of these writings would not have been published. Congratulations, Anne Waldman
