Chris Dubbs, assistant
professor of creative writing,
has received a $5,000 grant
awarded by the Pennsylvania
Council on the Arts Fiction
The grant is a Pennsylvania
Humanities Grant, which
scholars from all areas of
Pennsylvania strive for each
year. According to the grant
proposal, the Literature Program
of the Pennsylvania Council on
the Arts awards fellowships "to
a limited number of writers of
exceptional talent." Only
thirteen are selected out of four
hundred proposals, and Dubbs
was honorably one of them. He
was the only literature recipient
in northwestern Pennsylvania.
"Aside from giving you
resources to set aside blocks of
time to work on a project,
grants provide deadline pressure,
a very good motivator," said
The Pennsylvania Council
Award recognizes Professor
Dubbs' outstanding talents. It
also recognizes that he is part of
Behrend's creative writing
program. This has a positive
effect on the Division of
Humanities and Social Sciences.
According to Dr. Roberta
Salper, head of the division of
Humanities and Social Sciences,
this award enables Dubbs to
have more financial flexibility
and will call attention to his
talent. "I am very glad that the
Council has recognized
Professor Dubbs' talent, and I
am proud that he is a member of
Behrend's faculty and of Behrend
Amel Balcital Collegian Photographer
Dubbs will be using the grant
to complete a series of stories
he is writing about returning
World War II soldiers and the
French War bride who
accompanies one of them. The
literary journal Sou'wester
published the first story last
year, and the second one will
appear in the Colorado Review.
"I've never before written a
series of stories using the.same
character. It's like writing a
novel in steps," continued
Dubbs is also the author of
"Ms. Faust," a retelling of the
Faustian legend in which a
female executive makes a pact
with the devil in exchange for a
swift climb up the corporate
ladder. The book has been
optioned as a feature film.
