UW Creative Writing MFA Students to Read in Rawlins Sunday

September 30, 2015

Five Master of Fine Arts (MFA) candidates from the University of Wyoming Creative Writing MFA Program will read selections from their work Sunday, Oct. 4, at 4 p.m. at the Carbon County Higher Education Center (CCHEC) Career and Tech Ed Center in Rawlins.

The event is free and open to the public. The CCHEC Career and Tech Ed Center is located at 1650 Harshman St. The event is sponsored by the UW Creative Writing Program in cooperation with Dave Throgmorton, CCHEC director.

The student reading is part of an ongoing effort to share the creative efforts of UW Creative Writing MFA students with a wider audience and to bring together artistic communities across Wyoming. The MFA program is working to organize additional readings outside of Laramie in coming months.

The five MFA candidates participating in the reading are Maria Anderson, from Three Forks, Mont.; Dominick Duhamel, from Carlsbad, Calif.; Carly Fraysier, from Barre, Vt.; Lillian Schneider, from Bainbridge Island, Wash.; and John Thornton Williams, from Chattanooga, Tenn.

Anderson is in her second year in the MFA program. Her fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Big Lucks, The Atlas Review and Two Serious Ladies. She also is an editor for Essay Press.

Duhamel is working on a novel about journalist paranoiacs, Mexican gang members and charlatan preachers.

Fraysier is pursuing a combination degree in MFA Creative Writing (nonfiction) and environment and natural resources.

Schneider is a first-year MFA student studying fiction. Her work has previously appeared in The Atlantic.

Williams is a recipient of Glimmer Train's New Writer Award and the Tennessee Williams Scholarship to attend the Sewanee Writers Conference. His fiction is forthcoming in Glimmer Train and his work has recently appeared in Story, Witness, Joyland, Yalobusha Review and the Masters Review.

UW’s Creative Writing MFA Program is an intensive two-year studio degree in poetry, fiction and nonfiction. The program includes a flexible curriculum, cross-genre opportunities, opportunities for interdisciplinary study and an Eminent Writers in Residence program, which brings distinguished authors to campus to work closely with students.
