Learn About GAP


Ed Harkness received 2009 GAP Award funding to take time time off work to create, along with defraying costs of copying and submitting his manuscript to various publishers. Ed’s poetry manuscript, Boiling a Watch, is about time and what it is made of, how it smells when cooked, how it tastes, what happens when the steam of time clouds one’s glasses. His current plans are to put his poems through the editing phase in place of teaching summer quarter classes.

Ed also received GAP Awards in 1999 and 1989 from Artist Trust.
