MFA Alum Wins American Book Award

what have you done to our ears to make us hear echoes? was the MFA thesis of Arlene Kim. While in the Creative Writing Program, she worked extensively with William Reichard and Professor Maria Damon. Reichard loved the manuscript so much he sent it to the editor of Milkweed Editions. And now, Kim's debut collection of poetry, published in 2011, has received a prestigious American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation. As an MFA, Kim also received a Gesell Award in Poetry, an award for creative writing endowed by the Gesell Family.
