Peter Rock Awarded Guggenheim Fellowship
Peter Rock, professor of creative writing, has received a Guggenheim Fellowship to support work on his latest project, Spells, a fragmentary novel done in collaboration with five photographers. Guggenheim fellows are appointed on the basis of impressive achievement and exceptional promise for future accomplishment. Fellowships are intended to provide time and funding for fellows to work with as much creative freedom as possible. Since 1947, 61 Reed College graduates have received Guggenheim fellowships, including poet Gary Snyder ’51, writer Barbara Ehrenreich ’63, playwright Anne Washburn ’91, and new-media artist Igor Vamos ’90, who will speak at this year’s commencement ceremony.
