new student Lucien Meadows has work accepted!

Incoming MFA student in poetry Lucien Meadows shares this good news!

I am an incoming MFA Poetry student, and I arrived in sunny Carbondale over the weekend. I look forward to starting PSW in six days! When I checked my email for the first time here in Illinois, I learned that Toad, Virginia Tech's excellent literary magazine, has accepted two of my poems, "Arc" and "On Passing Through the Monongahela National Forest at Night," for inclusion in a future issue! Staci (Schoenfeld) said I should send you an email, to let you know, so that you could post the happy acceptance on the MFA Blog. I am excited, particularly as the two poems deal with growing up in West Virginia, and Toad has many readers from the WV and greater Appalachian area. I look forward to meeting you!

Congrats, Lucien and welcome to the MFA Program!
