Congrats to...

MFA poetry alum Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum:

Spoon River Poetry Review will be publishing "The Lives of Boys" and "Self-Portrait, 1997" in the coming months.


current fiction student Melissa Scholes Young:

After too many rejections to count, my baby, my "Scrap Metal Baby," has been accepted for publication in The View From Here's print journal for April 2010. "Scrap Metal Baby" is a short story that came out of a writing assignment in Pinckney's workshop. It was and is a stretch and a challenge for my writing style to write surreal. Pinckney made me do it. I'm grateful. "Scrap Metal Baby" can now be born. Her mama needs a rest.

Congrats Andy and Melissa!
