Diana Marie Delgado, currently residing in Astoria, a neighborhood of Queens in New York City, is the third recipient of the Letras Latinas Residency Fellowship. She will receive $1000 and be in residence for one month this July at the Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota. This annual distinction is part of an ongoing partnership between the literary program of the Institute for Latino Studies at the University of Notre Dame and the Anderson Center. The aim of this initiative is to identify and support a Latino or Latina writer who is working on a first full-length book, and for whom a one month residency would suppose a significant boost in this endeavor.
