MFA Success -- and a Friend of APBP's Stunning Work

Congratulations to Emily Watson, a May 2010 MFA graduate, who won the nonfiction division of the Iron Horse Discover Awards.


Iron Horse is an excellent literary magazine from Texas Tech University. MFA graduate Penny Zang was a previous winner in the fiction category.

And congratulations to current MFA student Rachel King, who finished in second place in the short story division (for "Our 1st Market Day") and received honorable mention in the children's book division (for "The Back Field") in the annual West Virginia Writers Inc. contest. Congratulations, too, to Charity Gingerich for finishing in third place in the short poetry division (for "Poem for a Late Summer Day") in the same contest.

Finally, check out the stunning visual work of West Virginia native and supporter of the Appalachian Prison Book Project Randi Ward at her Web site:

Nice work, everyone.
