DePaul English Graduate students had a very productive winter break– we received announcements from the following students about their recent awards and publications. Are you a student or graduate with news to share about an award, publication, job, or other accomplishment related to your degree? Email Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured in Ex Libris’s Student & Alumni News.
Congratulations to Bethany Brownholtz (M.A.W.P. ’12) on getting a poem published in the December 2012 edition of Broad Magazine, the online publication of Loyola University Chicago’s Women’s Studies & Gender Studies department. Bethany’s poem, entitled “What it’s like to look at her legs,” can be read along with the rest of the issue here.
Congratulations as well to current M.A.W.P. student Mikki Kendall, who has had a nonfiction essay published on the web magazine xoJane. Click over to xojane.com/entertainment/on-behalf-of-willow-smith-and-girls-like-her-shut-up to read Mikki’s essay, entitled “On Behalf Of Willow Smith And Girls Like Her: Shut Up And Keep Your Concerns To Yourself.”
And finally, congratulations to Raul Palma, also a current M.A.W.P. student, who recently had one short story published and other pieces place in two writing contests. Raul’s story “Amaranthus,” which he originally wrote for Christine Sneed’s Triptych class in fall 2012, was published by 34th Parallel literary magazine. Another short story of his, “Obsolescence,” was a finalist in Cutthroat Magazine‘s 2012 Rick DeMarinis Short Story Contest, and an excerpt from Immaculate, a novella he produced in Amina Gautier’s Novella Writing class last winter, placed in Glimmer Train literary magazine’s Family Matters contest.
