Alumni Workshop: Sat. Feb. 16 at 10am

The first LU MFA Alumni Workshop will be held on Saturday, February 16, at 10am in the Lindenwood University Cultural Center conference room (across from the auditorium).

Participants will email one prose piece (a short story, a personal essay, or a novel chapter) or a group of 5 poems to Beth by Friday, February 8. Alumni will receive workshop feedback from Beth, from the students in the winter journal editing class (who will have had lots of experience reading and responding to TLR submissions), and from each other. For participation in the workshop, we ask each alum to purchase one copy of Issue 2 of The Lindenwood Review at the reduced rate of $5.00. We ask alumni who already own a copy to please purchase a copy at the workshop to give to a friend. Please note: pieces discussed in workshop may not be submissions that are under consideration for Issue 3 of The Lindenwood Review, to avoid a conflict of interest. We welcome participants to submit their workshop pieces to Issue 4, when a new group of editorial assistants will review submissions. (Alumni may submit work to TLR, but current students may not.)

To reserve a spot in the workshop, email Beth as soon as possible to confirm that you will be participating. Please also indicate whether you will be workshopping a short story, an essay, a novel chapter, or poetry. Then you will email Beth your work by February 8.

If enough alumni (and current students who will become alumni) are interested in participating in workshops, we will continue to offer at least one alumni workshop each year. We will also consider offering a full novel workshop in the future, if enough alumni are interested; please let Beth know if you have a novel draft that you would like to workshop next year.

Contact Beth with any questions, and we look forward to reading your work!
