Happy new year! We’re starting 2012 off right, with a long list of good news from our alumni.
Micah Nathan (Fiction 2010)’s collection of short stories (and a novella) will be released by One Peace Books in June 2012. The short stories are from the MFA year, and the novella was pre-existing. The title is Jack the Bastard and Other Stories.
Renee Emerson (Poetry 2009) has joined the full-time English faculty at Shorter University in Rome, GA. She will teach poetry, creative writing, and American Literature.
Sheela Chari (Fiction 1997)’s first novel, Vanished, was published by Disney Hyperion, July 2011. Vanished is a children’s novel for ages 9 and up, set in the Boston area, and is available in stores. It has received some lovely coverage and reviews, including Kirkus, who writes: “Chari, in her debut novel, strikes the right note with this engaging, intricate story that spans generations and two countries.”
