Post-MFA Advice and a Chance to Win an Free English Accessory!

Lee Martin

Pulitzer Prize Finalist Lee Martin

Back in the fall of 2011, we were lucky enough to have Lee Martin— Pulitzer Prize Finalist author of The Bright Forever and many others– host a reading in Cherry Hall. And let me tell you: he knows how to captivate an audience. At the time I was a freshman, new to all things English and completely captivated. On top of all that, he has some truly impressive writing. That’s why, when a professor recommended sharing Martin’s post-grad school advice, I knew it would a great source to share. As someone who plans to go to grad school (eventually), but also as a student graduating soon, I found his advice extremely applicable. Students, grad students, parents, professors, and anyone else in-between: you’ll find his suggestions helpful. You can read his Post-MFA advice here.

I wasn’t able to attend the Adam Ross reading last night, but I’ve only heard great things. Because this is one of the only on-campus readings we’re having this semester, I’d really like to give it the attention it deserves. So, we’ll be having a guest columnist next week to give us their take on the event and provide us with pictures!
