Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. While at the Headlands Center for the Arts in the fall of 2015, writer and activist Anne Germanacos began to create a written, collaborative bridge between funder and fundee. More than a fascinating group-concept project, NOT UPON YOU is an experiment that affords new exploration of challenging questions, perspectives, and issues fundamental to (but often unexpressed in) the grantor/grantee relationship.
