Coastlines MFA Alumni Reading and Q&A Panel

On November 8th, 2012, Coastlines hosted four alumni from the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. Alumns Jill Bergkamp, Dusty Clark, Victoria Fedden, and AJ Ferguson read original creative work and participated in a Q&A session on the writing life, the MFA program, and the post-program experience. There was also a lovely tribute to MFA alumna, Kim McCoy, who passed away earlier this year.
