A Recent Alum Publishes Poetry

Recent alum Michelle Brittan, who is pursuing an M.F.A. in creative writing at California State University, Fresno, has written to tell us she will have  four poems  in an anthology being edited by Naomi Shihab Nye titled Time You Let Me In: 25 Poets Under 25. Moreover, the title of the anthology is taken from a line in one of Michelle’s poems. The anthology will be published by Greenwillow, a division of HarperCollins.  Michelle speaks highly of the program at CSU Fresno and has invited English majors here who are interested in M.F.A. programs to contact her through the English Department and writing program there, and she will be glad to provide her perspective on graduate school.   Michelle reports that  the well-known poet Nye will read at CSU Fresno in  April.

Congratulations to Michelle.
