Fucking Finally


After laboring over a decision for the past few weeks, and still waiting to hear back from three schools, I've finally settled my hash. Next year I will be attending UMass Amherst for an MFA in poetry.

I'd received some other really generous offers. I was also holding out to hear from all the places I'd applied to. However, last night I received a phone call from UMass informing I'd be able to teach a creative writing class this fall. Not sure what perks come in tandem with the job, but it is more or less what I want and where I want to be.

In other news, Carl will be selling the Greying Ghost back catalog at tomorrow's reading. It's said to rain, so here's an extra incentive to join us.




AGH. Fucking Finally.
