Former student Brian Dunlap is publishing a poetry chapbook, Concrete Paradise, which will be released by Finishing Line Press on August 3, 2018. The chapbook includes my poem “Those Who Came Before Us” that won the 2018 Jeff Marks Memorial Poetry Prize from december magazine.
Of his time in the Writers’ Program, Brian says, “After graduating from UC Riverside with my B.A. in Creative Writing , the classes taught through the Writers’ Program helped give me the structure I needed to continue to pursue a writing career.”
