MFA news!

Sharing from my FB post:

Today’s the day that I am officially starting in the low-residency MFA program at The Rainier Writing Workshop. Over the next three years, I will be working and studying towards a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing. Many thanks to all who have encouraged and inspired me to pursue this next chapter of my life.


AWP’s Writer to Writer Mentorship Program!

Sharing from my FB post:

Happy to share that I’m one of the mentees selected to participate in the Fall 2017 session of AWP’s Writer to Writer Mentorship Program.

It is such an honor to work with my mentor—the wonderful poet and writer; warm, encouraging and inspiring advisor—Shikha Saklani Malaviya!

My gratitude to the Association of Writers & Writing Programs for this wonderful opportunity, and to Diane Zinna Pettyjohn and her team for their warm welcome to us mentees.

I’m also thankful for, and inspired by, my fellow mentees–it’s a great group!
