We’re thrilled to report that Caitlin Doyle (Poetry 2008) has received a series of exciting literary honors this spring. She has been awarded a 2013 Literary Grant through the John Anson Kittredge Fund. Kittredge Fund grants are awarded to “individuals at an early stage of a promising professional career in the arts, humane letters, and the social sciences.”
Caitlin has also been selected as the recipient of a Tuition Scholarship for the 2013 Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference at Middlebury College.
In addition, she has been awarded this year’s WC&C Scholarship in Poetry through AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs). Each year, the WC&C Scholarship Program awards one scholarship to a poet and one to a fiction writer.

While in residence, the Fellow engages with the local community through a variety of possible means, such as readings, workshops, and presentations.
This spring, Caitlin has also published two book reviews. Her review of Heidy Steidlmayer’s “Fowling Piece,” which appeared as a Prose Feature at 32 Poems Magazine, can be read here. Her review of Jane Satterfield’s “Her Familiars,” was published in The Common and is also available online.
