Together with the Talve-Goodman family, One Story is pleased to announce our 2022 Adina Talve-Goodman Fellow: Ani Cooney.
A UCLA and VONA alum, Ani Cooney is the winner of a PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize and a Manuel G. Flores Prize from the Philippine American Writers and Artists (PAWA). His work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and can be found in Best Debut Short Stories: The PEN America Dau Prize, Epiphany, LikeWise Fiction, and ONE Archives.
The Adina Talve-Goodman Fellowship was created in memory of One Story’s former managing editor, the writer Adina Talve-Goodman. This fellowship offers a year-long mentorship on the craft of fiction writing with One Story magazine, and is given to an emerging writer whose work speaks to issues and experiences related to inhabiting bodies of difference. This means writing that explores being in a body marked by difference, oppression, violence, or exclusion; often through categories of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, religion, illness, disability, trauma, migration, displacement, dispossession, or imprisonment. Previous winners of the Adina Talve-Goodman fellowship include Diana Veiga, Arvin Ramgoolam and Nay Saysourinho.
Finalists for the Adina Talve-Goodman fellowship will all receive two free online courses with One Story. Finalists for the 2022 Fellowship were:
- Maria Gabriela Guevara
- Teresa Pham-Carsillo
- Caleb Wolfson-Seeley
- P.S. Zhang
One Story is grateful to the Talve-Goodman Family, our volunteer readers, all of the friends and organizations who helped spread the word about this fellowship, and the many talented writers who took the leap and shared their work with us. Applications for our 2023 Fellowship will open in September 2022.
