Alumni from the Department of Creative Writing have gone on to distinguish themselves through published work, teaching in a variety of circumstances, editing and publishing journals and books, and serving the profession in other significant ways across the United States and in many foreign countries. Each quarter we publish the accolades and contributions to the literary arts of our faculty, alumni, and students.
