Cave Canem Foundation, Inc.

CAVE CANEM, New York City, received $15,300 to support writing workshops engaging emerging poets. Cave Canem is a home for the many voices of African American poetry and is committed to cultivating the artistic and professional development of African American poets. The Cave Canem community has grown from an initial gathering of 26 poets to an influential movement with a renowned faculty and high-achieving fellowship of 289 poets residing in 34 states. Jerome support will cover two eight-week long poetry workshops in New York City. The fall workshop, Writing in Form, will be open to African American poets. The spring workshop, Writing Across Cultures, will be open to African American and Asian American poets. All participants will be emerging. The workshops will be led by a senior poet with strong teaching skills. Participants are chosen via an open application process and review by the poet instructor.
