Established with a generous gift from the Bermont family and in partnership with the Anthony Quinn Foundation, the Fellowship in Fiction and Nonfiction provides promising students with a unique and valuable experience in support of their own professional and artistic development as writers. Full-time undergraduate students (from any academic discipline or major) are selected annually through a blind submission process to attend an intensive, one-day master class with a distinguished visiting writer.

This year's distinguished visitor is American writer Sigrid Nunez. Ms. Nunez has published eight novels, including A Feather on the Breath of God, The Last of Her Kind, Salvation CityThe Friend, and, most recently, What Are You Going Through. She is also the author of Sempre Susan: A Memoir of Susan SontagThe Friend, New York Times bestseller, won the 2018 National Book Award and was a finalist for the 2019 Simpson/Joyce Carol Oates Prize. 

The Bermont talk will take place at Rogers Free Library, 525 Hope Street Bristol, RI. 

Date: April 1, 2022

Time: 7:00 PM
