Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
I’m deeply grateful to the Bronx Council on the Arts for awarding me a 2017 BRIO Fellowship. “BRIO” stands for “Bronx Recognizes Its Own.” Each year, the BCA awards fellowships to 25 Bronx artists. The Bronx is the only borough in New York City to provide this kind of ongoing award for artists. Click here to see all of this year's recipients.
