Celebrating Our WVU MFA Graduation Reading

A highlight of the end of the semester here in the Creative Writing Program has been the opportunity to have a reading from our graduating third-year MFA cohort.  It was amazing to hear everyone read from their theses and see them get presented with their graduation hoods.  Best wishes to the Class of 2022!

Winter Welcome: What We've Been up to
