Brandon Petty has just received a teaching fellowship to study creative writing at Naropa! Brandon also received an Academic Coaching scholarship to apply toward the fellowship. He will be studying in the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics & Writing at Naropa and will be studying poetry. About his fellowship, Brandon said, “I’m quite aware of the struggles one faces as a writer, heck even just as a person, here in the rural south and city market schematic, anyway. I’m very happy to have this opportunity. Blessed for this opportunity actually! Creativity is all there is!”Brandon is currently working on a memoir and has a series of work being published in The Heartland Review this fall.
