We’re starting the week off on a high note, with news about publications from two of our faculty members and an invitation to a MAWP gathering.
Prof. Michele Morano‘s essay, “Boy Eats World,” is published in the current issue of the creative nonfiction journal, Fourth Genre. In addition, her essay, “Evenings at the Collegeview Diner,” which appeared last fall in Water~Stone Review, has been named a “Notable Essay” in this year’s Best American Essays anthology. Congratulations to Prof. Morano on these great honors!
Kathleen Rooney‘s second single-authored book of poetry, Robinson Alone Provides the Image: A Novel in Poems, has been accepted for publication by Gold Wake Press. The book is scheduled for release in November, 2012. Congratulations to Prof. Rooney on this outstanding accomplishment!
All current Masters in Writing and Publishing students are invited to come out this Thursday night, Oct. 6, and hang with your fellow MAWP students and profs. Festivities will take place at the Lion Head Pub, 2251 N. Lincoln. Prof. Miles Harvey and others will show up around 8pm, and Prof. Michele Morano and others who are in class that night will come as soon as they are free.
This will be a casual, non-DePaul-sponsored event, meaning the drinks aren’t free, and there’s no pressure to show up, but Prof. Morano promises there will be cheap beer and grub, and a good time had by all. Hope to see you there!
