The Virginia G. Piper Fellow-in-Residence

Bojan Louis (MFA 2009, Fiction)

Presented in partnership with the College of Liberal Arts and Science, Humanities Division and the Department of English, the Virginia G. Piper Fellow-in-Residence combines the artistic space of a traditional residency with the teaching and professionalization of an academic fellowship into an innovative, full-time position at Arizona State University.

In addition to teaching one course a semester, the Piper Fellow-in-Residence also presents talks, readings, and other literary events and programs for the larger community. Candidates are drawn exclusively from alumni of ASU's creative writing program. The position lasts one year. 

The inaugural Virginia G. Piper Fellow-in-Residence is Bojan Louis, who graduated from the program in 2009 with a concentration in fiction.
