Muriel Nelson (poetry ’96) brought to our attention that the email address for the blog on our webpage needed updating.  The current address is: friendsofwritersblog@gmail.com    If you have sent news to the blog in the past three months and have NOT received a return email from me (David Haynes), PLEASE resubmit.

Muriel also shares this news about a fellow alumna:

I am delighted to announce that Patricia Corbus’s (poetry ’96) collection of poems Finestra’s Window has been published by Off the Grid Press. Finestra’s Window is the 2015 prize winner of this press’s nationwide contest. Pat received her MFA from the Warren Wilson Program for Writers in 1996.

Finestra’s Window begins with the line, “Open the sky-box, Uncle,” and the poems which follow refuse to sit still. In Tony Hoagland’s words, “Finestra’s Window is a collection full of mortal daring and formal bravado. Corbus’s work amazes and delights me, as it will any reader of poetry.”1

Finestra’s Window can be purchased online at <http://offthegridpress.net/>, or by sending a check for $19 (includes $3 shipping charge) to OTG Press, 86 Glendower Road, Boston, MA 02131.

Thanks, Muriel, for the correction AND for the news.  Alums and faculty: Keep the good news coming!
