In our inaugural issue we featured writers who are instructing in the MFA Creative Writing program. In Issue Two the focus was writers who had recently taught in Naropa's Summer Writing
Program. For this third issue, we tapped writers from Naropa's resident MFA Writing
and Poetics program. Issue Four, slated for summer '06, will include excerpts from
the creative manuscripts of our first set of MFA graduates.
Our last issue was dedicated to the poet Robert Creeley, whose contribution to Naropa
and to the canon of literature was profound and is enduring. This issue will honor
the passing of Barbara Guest. While there is always a sense of tragedy and loss at
such moments, with writers, we are left behind but not left empty-handed. We hope
that in the weeks and years to come, you will spend time with the inspiring gifts
she gave us.
