We’re proud to share Megan Fernandes (MFA: Poetry, 2013)’s recent publishing news, all accomplished as she’s been a full-time student in our MFA program!
In the past year, Megan has published two chapbooks: Organ Speech (Corrupt Press) and Some Citrus Makes me Blue (Dancing Girl Press). The anthology she co-edited, Strangers in Paris (Tightrope Books) was named one of the twelve recommended books in Parisian Expat Literature by World Literature Today. Megan gave readings to promote her work this past year in Paris, London, Toronto, New York City, and Chicago.
She is also the recent recipient of the Writers Room of Boston 2012 Fellowship in Poetry and was named a winner of the Dzanc Books Scholarship to the Disquiet Writing Festival in Lisbon this summer. This summer, our department is sending her to Portugal and Morocco as a 2012 Robert Pinsky Global Fellow in Poetry.
Megan is completing her PhD in Literature this year at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She has a forthcoming publication in Rattle.
Congratulations, Megan! We are excited for you.
