New Year's Kudos to---

Jared Y. Sexton (MFA, fiction, '08):
Wanted to pass along word that my collection Just Listen was named a finalist for the 2010 New American Fiction Award, judged by Lee K. Abbott. And, a couple of hours later, my story It is Wide and It is Deep was accepted by Abby Wheetley and Peter Lucas over at Prime Mincer.

John Owen (second-year, poetry):
Some good news to start off the new year. DMQ Review has picked up "Field Song" for their next issue.

Melissa Scholes Young (third-year, fiction):
My poem "Coconut Water," which I wrote in workshop with Judy, will be published in Tapestry. Spring 2011, I believe.

Congrats to all! Nice way to start the year!!!
