I’ve been quiet here lately. I was on the homestretch towards finishing my MFA program and as of Monday, I’m officially graduating with a 4.0 GPA. This is a huge personal accomplishment as the highest GPA I ever maintained was back in elementary school (mostly Bs).
My MFA experience was good. I found a program that was online only, which didn’t require any travel on my part. I was able to take workshops and classes outside of my comfort zone or expertise, such as narrative journalism, magical realism, the literature of war and the apocalypse, and playwriting. I had professors who encouraged my weirdness throughout the experience. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
I have a new piece of flash fiction over in Microfiction Monday, which you can read here.
I have a new Yelp review poem over at New Verse News, which you can read here.
