Together with the Talve-Goodman family, One Story is pleased to announce our 2024 Adina Talve-Goodman Fellow: Keith Hood.
Keith Hood is a former janitor and window cleaner. He retired from a job as a field technician for a Michigan electric utility after 32 years avoiding electrocution. His work has appeared in Blue Mesa Review, Quick Fiction, Flash Fiction Magazine, Your Impossible Voice, The Forge Literary Journal and Vestal Review.
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 centers, celebrates, or reclaims being marginalized through the lens of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, religion, illness, disability, trauma, migration, displacement, dispossession, or imprisonment. Previous winners of the Adina Talve-Goodman fellowship include Nathan Xie, Ani Cooney, 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 2024 Fellowship were:
- Lindsay Ferguson
- Osahon Ize-Iyamu
- Megan Lui
- Zen Ren
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 2025 Fellowship will open in Fall 2024.
