Creative writing MFA students to read selections of their work ahead of graduation

 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Nine students graduating this spring with an MFA in Creative Writing will read selections of their work in the Milano Room at the downtown library at 7:30 p.m. on April 28.

The reading is free and open to the public. 

“This is an exciting way to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of nine dedicated writers,” said Mark Brazaitis, English professor and the director of the Creative Writing Program. “It will be a delight to hear them read their fiction, poetry, and works of nonfiction.” 

Rachael Bradley, Katie Clendenin and Kasey Shaw will read nonfiction pieces. Gabriel Bass, Sharon Reynolds and Caroline Riley will read poetry selections, and Vahid Arefi, Karen Klein and Morgan Roediger will read fiction.

The MFA in Creative Writing program receives more than 100 applications for its nine positions. In the three years they are in the program, students take creative writing workshops as well as classes in literature, professional writing and editing and pedagogy.
