MFA and Beyond

The Langston Hughes House

Me at the Langston Hughes House with his portrait and his typewriter.

The long pauses in my blog has to stop.  When you are MFAing there really is little time for much else.  Reading and doing and writing Thesis.  But that is all coming to an end. I graduate on May 22nd (my thesis is due early May). 

It has been an interesting educational ride.  Five years of almost non-stop schooling. It is coming to an end.  I’m both happy and sad. But I am excited. I’m moving on to bigger and better things in my writing future.  Don’t know what they are yet, but I know they are there.

Today I will be volunteering at The Langston Hughes House. Their program the I, Too Arts Collective has events, and it looks like this summer is packed with them.  Today author Willie Perdomo will be stopping by to give a talk.

On April 13th, poets Gregory Pardlo and Nicole Sealy will be reading their poetry. I know, I sound like a fan girl. Just so excited to have the opportunity to be around such talented people on a regular basis.

…and yes, the entries will become more frequent again.
