Rebecca Pelky: Following her accolades and success of her 2021 book, “Through a Red Place” (winner of the Perugia Press Prize), this January, Clarkson’s Rebecca Pelky receives the National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship.
“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support this group of poets and provide them with the means to focus on their writing,” said the NEA’s Director of Literary Arts Amy Stolls. “Their poetry explodes with originality in form and content, offering powerful reflections on the pain and joy of our modern times.”

Additionally, in 2022 she helped create the language section of the new website Brothertown website / Language with the help of fellow Brothertown Tribal Member Robert Tryon – many thanks go to them from our members, striving to learn our native languages from this very detailed resource.
