Alumni Email List

Hey Everyone!

If you are a graduate of the program and your thesis has been approved, you should be on the alumni group’s email list. I sent out an email prior to the residency (on July 31st). If you did not receive this email in your inbox and you are a thesis-approved graduate of the program, please send me your current email address so that I can add you to the list. If you are already on the email list, but would like to switch the email address we have on file for you, let me know.

You can send me an email or message me on Facebook (I’m a member of the MFA Writing Survivor’s Group on FB), since it’s generally unwise to paste your email address in plain text on the internet.

I’ll post a message later today or tomorrow announcing our new president!

Poor Yorick informational meeting

Hi MFAers!

I will be hosting an informational meeting Friday at 11 a.m. in the ballroom for anyone interested in learning more about our program’s online literary journal, Poor Yorick: A Journal of Rediscovered Objects

We publish feature pieces twice a month (ideally) year-round in all genres submitted by people around the U.S. and world. We staffers write accompanying nonfiction pieces examining or expanding upon an aspect or theme mentioned in the feature. We also partner with museums locally and nationally and write museum spotlights on them a few times a year.

There are a few levels of involvement available depending on how much, or little, time you want to commit. We meet once a month at the main campus, but everything else is remote and on your own time (with respect to publication deadlines, of course).

Feel free to email me with any questions at, and I hope to see you Friday morning!

Mel Johnson
