Grades are in; graduation photographs are posted on Facebook. Amanda Tinder Smith, erstwhile graduate candidate, is now Amanda Tinder Smith, Ph.D.–and will be starting work as a faculty member at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in the fall. Sam Ferrigno, B.A., has an internship at Yale University Press, where he’ll get to know Niamh Cunningham, who not only works at YUP but has completed the first year of her M.A. program in English at Yale. Next fall Lisa D is starting her M.F.A. at Columbia in play writing; three other former students will also start writing programs elsewhere.
The ceiling in my office is fixed. Nothing has fallen on my head–at least not literally–for several weeks now.
So far, so good, right? Some great recent graduates are still looking for serious work (I can supply them with excellent references) but at least we’re off to a good start for the summer…
