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.
