in the other room

y’all. please check out the other room journal for the latest: a story entitled “cooks” written by our very own program director beth loffreda.

“The quesadillas were being made by the daughter. These consisted of tortillas folded over beans and sliced avocado and grated cheese, which were then warmed and browned in a pan. The mother had eaten an early lunch, but hoped to also participate in this later one. She asked for a half-quesadilla–she did not wish to be a bother. This request was greeted with incredulity and scorn.”

–Beth Loffreda is director of the MFA Program in Creative Writing at the University of Wyoming.  Her fiction has recently appeared in Epoch, and her nonfiction includes the book Losing Matt Shepard.
