The North Carolina Arts Council has awarded Landon Godfrey a generous 2011-2012 artist fellowship in the amount of ten thousand dollars. She will use the money to make time to begin writing poems for a second book. The Arts Council supports many types of artists and arts endeavors throughout the state, asking grant recipients to remain in North Carolina for the grant year, which Landon is happy to do.
Landon Godfrey was the winner of the 2009 Cider Press Review Book Award with her manuscript, Second-Skin Rhinestone-Spangled Nude Soufflé Chiffon Gown. Visit the CPR Bookstore to get your copy today.
