Each semester, the Creative Writing Program hosts a student reading series. In the fall series, 2nd year MFA students read from some of their latest work, which for many includes bits and pieces of what will become their theses in the spring.
The first reading of the fall semester went down at Night Heron Books on September 21st. Emily Pifer, Ammon Medina, and Alec Osthoff read to a full house on a Friday night that delivered Laramie’s first snow of the season!
Emily, 2nd year in nonfiction, read from her thesis-in-progress, Body of Work.
2nd year Poet Ammon read from an essay that features the re-appropriated poems of Pablo Neruda.
And Alec, 2nd year fiction, read from his novel-in-progress, Sawtooths. He also read his poem, “Western Interior,” that inspired him to write the novel.
Huge shout-out to Lilly Schneider for her lovely locks in the foreground of most of the pictures taken at the event!
