I'm pleased to announce I will be joining the Sierra Nevada MFA in Writing faculty this fall. Last year, I visited to read and give a workshop. I already loved the faculty, both undegrad and grad, but I fell in love with the place! Right on the lip of Lake Tahoe, which means Lake of Sky, the trees shoot up like arrows, and the pine cones are big as watermelons. This low res MFA program is one of great heart and close attention to the world and words, with Brian Turner at the helm, a poet and memoirist of courage and skill. I am so happy to join this community: I believe. For more info, see Brian Turner discuss the program here.
