NYU MFA Publication Round-Up

As second semester draws to a close, we'd like to celebrate the accomplishments of our fellow NYU MFA'ers—including many of the Editors on our staff! Over the past year, our community has published fiction, personal essays, journalism, and poetry in a variety of online and print venues (with several publications forthcoming as well). If you're looking to discover something—or someone—new to read, check out some of our writing below.
