Two Alumni Receive Prestigious Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University

Rosalie Moffett (‘YR) and Corey Van Landingham (‘YR) have both been selected as 2013 recipients of the Wallace Stegner Followship for the Creative Writing Program at Stanford University. Rosalie Moffett grew up in a canyon in Eastern Washington. After graduating from Lewis & Clark, she got her MFA at Purdue University. A 2012 Discovery/Boston Review prize winner, her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Believer, Field, Tin House, and elsewhere. She plans to spend her time as a Stegner fellow writing more poems and finding out how they could be a manuscript. Corey Van Landingham is the author of Antidote (forthcoming from Ohio State University Press), winner of the 2012 Ohio State University Press / The Journal Award in Poetry. She also completed her MFA at Purdue University, where she was a Poetry Editor for Sycamore Review. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in AGNI, Best New Poets 2012, Colorado Review, Crazyhorse, Indiana Review, Kenyon Review, The Southern Review, Third Coast, and elsewhere. While at Stanford she hopes to complete a second collection of poetry.

Stanford offers ten two-year fellowships each year, five in fiction and five in poetry. To have even one alumna selected for the program would be a very high honor. To have two alumnae within one year is surely a testament to the talents of these students and to the efforts of Lewis & Clark English department faculty to prepare their students for great things beyond Lewis & Clark.
