The Minnesota State Arts Board recently awarded St. Olaf College English faculty members Jenny Dunning and Kaethe Schwehn grants as part of its Artist Initiative program.

The grants aim to support artistic development, nurture artistic creativity, and recognize the contributions individual artists make to the creative environment of the state of Minnesota. Dunning received a $10,000 grant and Schwehn a $9,300 grant, and both will use the funds to further their book projects and offer writing workshops.
