Alumni In-Depth

In a little over a decade, our alums have published over 60 books with presses such as Doubleday, Harper's, Coffee House, Simon and Schuster and Knopf. They've won National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, Provincetown Fine Arts Fellowships, Stegners, and Rome Prizes. Current students are blazing out of the gate, too: we have not one, but two current MFAs publishing books with major presses this year: Mary Chen's first book of poetry will be out in January 2012 from Black Ocean and Sarah Fox will publish her second book, Mother Substance, with Coffee House Press in fall 2012. Our website has one of the most comprehensive alumni pages at the University of Minnesota (Alumni News and Notes) Please take a look at our new feature, "Alumni In-Depth," where we list specific alumni accomplishments along with "Life in the MFA" recollections: http://creativewriting.umn.edu/people/alumniindepth.html
