The Wyoming Arts Council is an invaluable resource to the state, offering grants, programming, and other means of support for working artists. Featured in their Winter Newsletter are UW MFA students Rebecca Estee and Kali Fajardo-Anstine for their work at the Wyoming Girls School. As part of their MFA Project, these two have made monthly visits to Sheridan, Wyoming to teach creative writing.
Be sure to check out the full newsletter for other wonderful happenings around the state. You can do so here.
