Congrats to Melissa Scholes Young!

Second-year fiction MFA student Melissa Scholes Young has news to share as well:

The editor of Mothering just called to let me know they want my essay, "To Nurse or Not to Nurse" (forgive me, Shakespeare, but Mama needs a new pair of shoes), to be the feature article in their May/June print magazine.

Also, my paper "In Service of the Body: An Academic and Creative Approach to the Interdisciplinary Study" was accepted for presentation at the National Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University in March. It's a research paper that resulted in a short story. I wrote it last semester between Dr. Klaver's class and Beth's workshop.

Congrats, MSY! Way to work academia!
