Winners of the literary arts fellowships (short stories) are Marla Cantrell of Alma and Alice Otto and Hung Pham, both of Fayetteville. Performing arts winners (this year in theatrical directing) are Times' "Visionary" Amy Herzberg of Fayetteville's TheatreSquared, Kassie Misiewicz of Bentonville's Trike Theatre, and Rebekah Scallet of the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre.

Pham, director of the Arkansas Studio Project literacy project, is the only male winner this year. Not sure what that says about the particular media the prizes focus on this year, if anything. Winners receive $4,000. There will be a public reception at the Historic Arkansas Museum from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 3. Reserve at 324-9766.
