Please join us next Friday, April 15th at 7:00pm at the Alice Peters Auditorium (PB 191) for the first of our thesis readings for the spring semester. We’ll be hearing from four great graduating writers:
MICHELLE BRITTAN has work published or forthcoming in the journals “Crab Creek Review,” “Nimrod,” “The Grove Review,” and “Calyx,” and was the title poet for “Time You Let Me In: 25 Poets Under 25,” an anthology edited by Naomi Shihab Nye. Last year, she won the Ernesto Trejo Poetry Prize. Born in San Francisco of mixed white and Malaysian heritage, she lived in the Pacific Northwest before coming to Fresno
MIGUEL JIMENEZ was born and raised on Chicago’s South Side. Before enrolling in the MFA Creative Writing program at Fresno State, he received his B.A. in English Creative Writing from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. He was a contributing writer for “Café Magazine,” and assistant editor for the “Chicago Artists’ News.”
“In this collage of essays, letters, movies, advertisements, and every other medium known to man, Steven Church, author of The Guinness Book of Me, journeys to the depths of the human mind through his often bizarre turns of thought. Church philosophizes without any philosophical rhetoric and questions everything without seeming to question a thing. This thought-provoking postmodern jumble of serial killers, obsessive correspondences, and jumbo toys will leave you both enlightened and thoroughly entertained.”
Also, Steven’s essay “The Sound of Retreat” was nominated by The Pinch for a Pushcart Prize. Congratulations!
