Creative Writing News

Posted by bgsuenglish on March 19, 2009


Michael Czyzniejewski and Karen Craigo, editors-in-chief of Mid-American Review will read from their work at Prout Chapel tonight, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. as part of this semester’s on-going Creative Writing reading series. We recently featured the news of the publication of Mike’s debut collection Elephants in Our Bedroom (Dzanc Books, 2009). We’re also pleased to announce that Karen has been recommended for a $10,000 grant in creative nonfiction from the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). This is Karen’s third individual artist grant from the OAC!

In related news, the Devine Award winners for 2008-2009 are Brandon Jennings and Aimee Pogson in fiction; and Angela Gentry and Stokely Klasovsky in poetry. Congratulations to all!

The Devine fellowship is named after Richard Devine, a promising M.F.A. candidate tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in 1970.
