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.
