The Visiting Writers Series (VWS), hosted by the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Kentucky, kicks off Oct. 13 with Academy Award winner Kevin Willmott.
The consortium includes all of Kentucky’s state universities, seven of its private colleges and two historical societies. Each constituent institution is represented on a statewide editorial board, which supervises the UPK imprint.
The University of Kentucky College of Fine Arts associate professor will look to promote popular music both in the classroom and beyond, while working toward advancing inclusive practices in popular music education.
The grants of up to $500 are intended to support humanities-related programming and expenses related to speaker fees and/or event logistics. Individuals in any UK college or department are eligible to apply.
