The Bermont Fellowship in Fiction and Nonfiction
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 City, The Friend, and, most recently, What Are You Going Through. She is also the author of Sempre Susan: A Memoir of Susan Sontag. The Friend, a 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.
