    The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation recently announced the recipients of its 2022 fellowships, chosen through a peer-review process from nearly 2,500 applicants. Of the 180 recipients—“these successful applicants were appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise”—25 were awarded to fiction writers, nonfiction writers, and poets.

    Congratulations to the 2022 fellows!
