We are always excited when one of our faculty members has a new publication in the works, but we’re especially happy to announce when their books get the praise they so rightfully deserve. Fiction faculty member, and author of multiple books, including: Coal Black Horse, Far Bright Star, and The Coldest Night, Robert Olmstead, has an upcoming book, Savage Country, and it has already received a Kirkus starred review, which called Savage Country, “Another gorgeous, brutal masterpiece from a great American writer.”
Robert Olmstead, fiction faculty
We are excited to read Bob’s latest, and September 26, 2017, seems far too long to wait. And while we’re on the subject of waiting, don’t wait too long to get your application in for the January 2018 residency. The deadline is October 1, 2017. You just might get to study with this award-wining writer.
Suzanne Cleary, poetry faculty
If poetry is more your thing, check out this wonderful interview with poetry faculty member, Suzanne Cleary. You can even get a taste of her actual poetry as her piece, “Elm Street” is included at the end of the interview.
As you can see, even though it is summer, it is a busy time in the MFA office keeping up with all our faculty accomplishments. We look forward to meeting all the new students in January and sharing their achievements when they come.
