The index for PEN Center USA’s Strange Cargo: An Emerging Voices Anthology 1997-2010 reads like a Writers’ Program yearbook. Creative writing instructor and former student Eduardo Santiago is included in the anthology along with twenty two other Writers’ Program students, and the foreword to the book, which includes stories, poems, and nonfiction pieces, was written by former Writers’ Program student and instructor Janet Fitch! Students Anna Alves and Laurie Owyang contacted us to let us know the good news.
Says Laurie: “I have been a student of Eve Caram, as well as Christopher Meeks, Mary Yukari Waters, and Gary Glickman. I am grateful for their wisdom and generosity. Anna and I were PEN Rosenthal Fellows in 2006, and we have continued our writing group since then!”
Kudos to Laurie, Anna, and all of the other PEN Center Emerging Voices writers!
