MFA grads receive fellowships at Stanford

Two recent graduates of the MFA Program for Writers have been awarded two-year Wallace Stegner Fellowships at Stanford University for 2011-2013. Helen Hooper, a 2009 graduate in fiction, and Chiyuma Elliott, a 2010 graduate in poetry, are among the 10 writers recently named as recipients of this prestigious fellowship, which includes a stipend of $26,000 a year. Fellows are regarded as working artists, intent upon practicing and perfecting their craft. Notable past Stegner Fellows include Wendell Berry, Raymond Carver, Philip Levine, Robert Pinsky and Tobias Wolf, as well as numerous Warren Wilson MFA faculty members including Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Samantha Chang, Stacey D’Erasmo, Ehud Havazelet, Dana Levin, Eric Puchner and Alan Shapiro. Two currently enrolled MFA students have also been Stegner Fellows: Keith Ekiss and Neil Fischer.

Loewenstein is an active member of the campus and local community. For the past two years she has served as a Bonner Leader on the Service Learning Crew, coordinating service trips and supporting the College’s alternative break program.
