A wealth of alumni news!

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.

Chari_Vanished (2)

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.”

Kimberly Elkins has a forthcoming story in The Iowa Review, titled “Je Ne Sais Quoi.” She began her story in Leslie Epstein’s workshop. We will repost when the issue is released.
