This distinguished fellowship program hails a diverse group of men and women from around the globe and encourages a high level of intellectual stimulation and engagement. Scientists, artists, historians, sociologists, economists and literary scholars come to the program to build a unique multidisciplinary community where they are able to communicate and engage in transformative ways.

Professor Hong will be in residence from September 2010 to May 2011.

Says Professor Hong of her fellowship, "this opportunity will enable me to write the second part of a two-volume sonnet series which I've been writing for some time."

Professor Hong has taught several writing courses at UW Bothell where she emphasizes the new generation of experimental writing that is designed to spark original thought and fresh approaches to creative work. 

Her experience is in poetry, fiction, nonfiction and multimedia work, and can be seen in various publications including Growing up Asian American: an Anthology (Morrow/Avon Books), The Stranger, Seattle Magazine, American Book Review, and Painted Bride Quarterly.
