MFA Program in Creative Writing 20th Anniversary Celebration
On October 25 and 26, the MFA Program in Creative Writing celebrated its 20th Anniversary by holding an alumni reunion. Approximately 80 alumni and 10 former faculty made it back for the celebration, which included panel discussions, a book-signing reception at Shaman Drum, readings, and a dinner party with music and dancing late into the night afterwards. Nicholas Delbanco, who is stepping down as program director (though not as professor), was honored with the presentation of a student scholarship in his name. By all accounts, the weekend was a wonderful chance for participants to celebrate what has become one of the best MFA programs in the country, as well as to reconnect with the U-M writing community in both its local and far flung manifestations.
