PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Rhode Island Foundation has awarded $25,000 fellowships to three local writers.

The foundation selected Julie Danho, of North Providence, Sussy Santana, of Providence, and Susannah Strong, of Exeter, from nearly 200 applicants for the annual Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowships.

Danho and Santana are poets. Strong is an assistant art professor at Salve Regina University.

The foundation says the grants are designed to give writers more time to concentrate on developing their craft.
