2020 reading fellows

UTV Reading Fellows are exciting young writers with a first book either published or in the pipeline. Most are alumni of Under the Volcano. Iin residence throughout the Core Program, they assist master class writers as a second pair of eyes, with a special focus on suggestions for revision.  During the Extension Residency they work on their own writing and are available by appointment for one-on-one consultations by genre.

"When I was feeling overwhelmed at the sheer talent and accomplishments of the faculty, a fellow writing student said to me, “The only difference between them and us is time.”
