Join us for our first Columbia Selects: MFA Readings of the 2012-13 year.
Thurs, September 6, at 7 pm
Selected by the Columbia Writing Program, our readers are sure to dazzle and delight. Our line-up this month:
Priya Chandrasegaram ('11 SOA) has lived and worked in six countries on three continents. She once contributed to a social history of U2 for The Dubliner magazine in Ireland, and often cites random U2 trivia as a party trick. She lives in Queens and currently divides her writing time between a Gothic romance and a novel about empathetic robots.
Christina Rumpf ('09 SOA) received her MFA in Nonfiction from Columbia's School of the Arts in 2009. She is the Director of Columbia's Summer Creative Writing Program for High School Students, and her writing has appeared in The Faster Times and Four and Twenty, among others. She is currently at work on Burn, a memoir about sex, death and alcohol.
Anne Dyer Stuart ('03 SOA) won the Henfield Prize and New South Journal’s 2012 prose prize. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Third Coast, Midway Journal, Earth’s Daughters, Manor House Quarterly, Opium Magazine, Best of the Web 2008, The Arkansas Review, storySouth, and The New Plains Review, among others. She just completed a novel called How to Behave After Murder.
The first reading of the year will be co-hosted by Emily Austin and Bryan VanDyke.
What is Columbia Selects? The first Thursday of each month the Columbia MFA program hosts a reading series featuring Writing Program alumni. These fresh talents are finished with or near to finished with their first books, but do not yet have a book contract and/or an agent. In recent years, many of our featured writers have achieved critical and commercial success. This is your chance to glimpse who you'll be reading in 2014!
Columbia Selects is curated by Bryan VanDyke and Emily Austin.
