English major alum Nick Friedman to be Stegner Fellow

Congratulations to poet and Geneseo alum Nick Friedman, who has been selected for a Wallace Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University. The Stegner Fellowship one of the most prestigious and highly-selective creative writing fellowships in the world. You can sample some of Friedman’s poetry on the website of The Poetry Foundation.

Last spring, we reported on Friedman’s 2012 Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship at the Poetry Foundation, his March 2013 appearance in the New York Times’ T-Magazine, and his April (National Poetry Month) 2013, interview on NPR’s Weekend Edition, during which he read his poem Not the Song, but After.
