GUGGENHEIM FOR GRACE:

Grace Schulman, Nation poetry editor for the past thirty-two years, won a Guggenheim Fellowship to support work on a new book of poems. Her recent books are The Paintings of Our Lives and Days of Wonder: New and Selected Poems, both from Houghton Mifflin. An English professor at Baruch College, Schulman is not only a poet but a friend to poets: In 1974 she founded Discovery/The Nation, an annual contest for poets hitherto unpublished in book form, sponsored by The Nation and the Poetry Center at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y.
