SU's McCarty Earns MSCA Individual Artist Award
SALISBURY, MD---Nearly 100 artists recently received their share of some $218,000 as winners of the 2016 Maryland State Arts Council (MSCA) Individual Artists Awards — but only one was from the Eastern Shore: Salisbury University’s Dr. Susan McCarty.
An assistant professor of English in SU’s Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts, McCarty was selected out of nearly 600 artists overall. One of 29 winners in the “Fiction/Creative Non-Fiction” category, she received $1,000 to help support her future work.
McCarty’s entry, the short story “Fellowship,” was published in the literary journal Willow Springs last July. The story explores a young Midwestern woman’s reaction to the announcement of her parents’ separation.
McCarty joined SU’s English Department in 2013. Holding a Ph.D. from the University of Utah and M.F.A. from Vermont College, she has published in journals and magazines including Utne Reader, Indiana Review, Willow Springs and Conjunctions, among others.
