Department News

One of our recent graduates, Fiona Tracey (creative writing, December 2020), has been busy. Not only has she written a lot, but Fiona has recently had several pieces published! Her poems “you slept” and “telling you good morning—and hearing it back” appeared in the January 2021 edition of The Blackwater Review. Her poem “good habits, bad conscience” was included in the May 2021 edition of Better than Starbucks. In June 2021, Fiona’s poem “On Pass-A-Grille Beach” appeared in Stonecoast Review and “Consciousness” appeared in The Orchards Poetry Journal. And finally, Naugatuck River Review will publish her poem “i remember everything” in September of this year. Wow, Fiona, you’re doing great work and are certainly impressing all of us here in the Department! Keep going!
