2022 – Writer In-Residence Selected Resident – Mai Tran

The 2022 Velvetpark Artist Residency has been awarded to Mai Tran. She begins her residency in the New Year in Brooklyn at Crown Studios. Once Mai settles in we look forward to posting and update on her work. Mention should be made of our runner-up candidate: Luz Lorenzana Twigg. Our selection committee comprised Kayva Yang and Anne-E Wood.

We here at Velvetpark want to thank everyone who applied. And while I know “Dear John/Jane” emails for those who received them, are always hard to read, there were indeed many talented and skilled applicants which made the selection process very competitive and challenging for our committee.

So take heart, your hard work is noticed and appreciated! We hope to work with many of you in the not to distant future.
