First Year Writing announced the winner of the inaugural Grace Paley Teaching FellowshipDiana Goetsch.

Goetsch is an award-winning poet and essayist whose 2015-16 American Scholar column “Life in Transition,” she says, was her opportunity to document her coming out as a trans woman “as a service to a battered community.” Mentored by the great William Zinsser, who also contributed regularly to the American Scholar, Goetsch believes her writing there meant “practicing in a sacred space.”
