Lucy Anderton (poetry ’05): In 2011 Lucy published poems in Fence and Drunken Boat. Her chapbook “Lantern” was a semi-finalist for the Tupelo Press Snowbound Chapbook Award. But Lucy says, “This is all frosting on the cake of the biggest news: In October I had the enormous good fortune of safely giving birth to my first child, Ophelia Melody. She sends you all a good and gusty ‘Squawk!!!!’”
Pam Bernard (poetry ’96): Pam began an educational outreach program centered around her book of narratives about the Great War, Blood Garden: An Elegy for Raymond (2010, WordTech Communications). She shares Blood Garden with students in high school and undergraduate history and writing programs, in an effort to engage young people with the personal experience of war. She has found the response staggering.
