This is PJKM here, unable to post myself for reasons mysterious and irritating. Before the semester fizzles into nothingness, please note: Tulane’s creative writing faculty are constantly in the news.
Over the summer, there’ll be fewer posts, but we’re hoping to lure some students, past and present, over here to talk about their great achievements – winning prizes, going to MFA programs, undertaking internships, embarking on glorious careers, publishing stories and poems, etc.
Also, next week we’ll be posting the names of this year’s Creative Writing prizes, including the winner/runners-up in the Academy of American Poets Contest – judged by this year’s Arons Poet, Nicole Cooley – and the Dale Edmonds Short Fiction Award, judged by Michigan-based novelist Rebecca Johns.
In the meantime, congratulations to Philip Matthews, who will take up a place on the MFA program at Hollins University in Virginia this fall, and to Mark Clements, who will be terrorizing his fellow fiction writers at the MFA program at Colorado State University.
