There is a lot of recent good news surrounding our MFA in Writing community!
The September/October issue of Poets & Writers Magazine contains an interview with author Jacqueline Woodson by Writing faculty member Rigoberto Gonzalez.
Two alumnae—Erika Anderson (’11) and Sarah Seltzer (’12)—also contributed articles in the same issue.
A number of our alums (and one current student) also earned several prizes in August:
- Current student Marya Hornbacher was the recipient of the Annie Dillard Award for Creative Nonfiction.
- Poet David Mura (’91) was a recipient of a McKnight Artists Fellowship.
- Fiction writer Melissa Pritchard (’95) won the McGinnis-Ritchie Award in fiction. David Ebenbach (’00) won the Juniper Prize in short fiction for his collection, The Guy We Didn’t Invite to the Orgy.
Congratulations to our winners!
