Writers’ Program student Emily Hunt Kivel is headed back to school! Emily, who has studied short story with Ben Loory and Lou Mathews, will be starting the MFA program in fiction through Columbia University this fall!
Emily used short stories she created in her Writers’ Program classes as her writing sample as well as a novel-in-progress. “Taking workshops with the Writers’ Program changed the way I viewed writing and how I conceptualized myself as I writer,” Emily says. “It sparked a fit of creativity and productivity in me that made me confident enough to pursue my writing with all my heart. I am indebted to Lou Mathews, whose earnest advice and insightful criticism prompted my best work (and the entirety of my writing sample).”

Congratulations, Emily! You can check out more on Emily at http://emilyhuntkivel.com.
