Center for Literary Publishing wins NEA grant

By Emily Cubbage

Housed in CSU's Department of English, and publisher of the Mountain West Poetry Series and the Colorado Review, the Center for Literary Publishing has won a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The CLP is one of 895 grant recipients. The center will use the money to support the 2014 publication of two new titles in the Mountain West Poetry Series: “The Logan Notebooks” and “Songs” by Utah poets Rebecca Lindenberg and Derek Henderson.

Stephanie G’Schwind, director of CLP and editor of Colorado Review, said “As a teaching press —the only one of its kind in Colorado — we are passionate about providing students an environment in which to learn about and participate in small press publishing. By doing this, we are feeding the literary ecosystem, training the next generation of editors.”

Valuable grant

The grant also helps fund payments to Colorado Review’s authors.

“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support these exciting and diverse arts projects that will take place throughout the United States,” said NEA acting chairman Joan Shigekawa.

The NEA received 1,528 eligible Art Works applications, requesting more than $75 million in funding.   Of those applications, 895 are recommended for grants worth $23.4 million.
