We apologize for the delay on this last recording — we’ll blame finals madness for this one! For those of you who missed it, May 25th was our final show. As a way to say farewell, we decided to read our own work. Colin Harris read his essay “Monty Hall” and Marcy Farrey read her essay “Meaningless Writing.” Listen here: DePaulSWSShow10
Next fall, the DePaul Student Writers Series will have new hosts and will begin airing new episodes. We will still try to update this blog in the summer with some new content.
Congratulations to co-host Colin Harris, who graduated this past Sunday with his Master of Arts in Writing and Publishing! Marcy Farrey will graduate in August. You can follow her other projects at www.marcyfarrey.com. This summer she will be working on an independent press anthology and a short documentary on local independent presses, and you can follow her progress there.
A big thanks to everyone who read on our show this past winter and spring quarter! We had a great time and heard a lot of great work! Have a great summer!
We’d like to thank Angel Woods and Laura Whitener for joining us on the show this week. Angel Woods read her award-winning creative nonfiction essay “A Lesson About Detours.” Her essay will appear in Threshold Literary Magazine. Laura Whitener told us about her experience starting a literary magazine. Check out her first issue: http://fireflyjarpress.wordpress.com/.

This special edition of our show was recorded last Friday, April 20th when DePaul University welcomed five University of Alabama poets to campus. The group is part of an exciting exchange program between DePaul and the University of Alabama. Four DePaul poets also shared with us their experience in Alabama in February. We were happy to have them on the show and hear all about the writing community they have formed.
The students from the University of Alabama are interns with Slash Pine Press, which makes unique, limited-run chapbooks. DePaul students also had a chance to get involved when they visited campus. Check out the press at www.slashpinepress.com.
Hope you all enjoy the show and thanks again to all of the talented poets who shared their work with us!
We have very exciting news today from one of our previous guests! Rhiannon Falzone, an MAWP graduate student, has published one of the essays she read on our show. You can read the piece in the latest issue of The Violet magazine. Flip to page 14: http://www.thevioletonline.com/. Congratulations to Rhiannon!
Also, we would like to let our listeners know that we will not have a show this Friday, April 13th. Instead, we encourage you to attend the English Graduate Student Conference. Check out the schedule on the conference webpage: http://depaulenggrads.wordpress.com/about/egsa/e-g-s-a-spring-conference-2012/.
Enjoy the weekend! Check back for details on our next show.
