Student Reading @ Cheyenne Public Library

Last Thursday, we had the pleasure of reading at the Laramie County Public Library in Cheyenne. Lilly, Alec, Ammon, Liz, and Kat all read from their work. The LCPL is pretty swank and includes this weird device where you insert a coin and it spins round and round in a wide bowl. We also enjoyed some dope teppanyaki on the program’s dime at Wasabi.

MFA Students attend Jackson Hole Writer’s Conference


Last June, the Jackson Hole Writer’s Conference awarded scholarships to three MFA students to attend. Carly Fraysier, Maria Anderson, and Dominick Duhamel got to spend three days in Jackson listening to craft talks; discussing their manuscripts with established authors, editors, and agents; meeting members of the Wyoming literary scene; and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The conference’s keynote speaker was UWyo’s own Nina McConigley, who also gave an excellent craft talk on how to transform autobiographical experiences into fiction.
