Fordham Creative Writing announces an opportunity to read your work

We’re looking for prose writers to read for ten minutes. If you are interested in participating, please submit your piece(s) for approval.
Eligibility: Rose Hill and Lincoln Center graduate students in the English department.
Guidelines: Submit up to (but no more than) seven pages of text (fiction or nonfiction). Please identify the genre to which you are submitting.
To submit your application, click here.
The Creative Writing Program at Fordham is thrilled to announce that CURA Magazine's Issue No. 13 is now live. You'll find new media work by Jason Nelson, poetry by Cate Marvin and a special section featuring emerging Filipino artists and writers.
Also, CURA is throwing a party just for you... if you know the password.
Please join us for The Beautiful & The Damned: A Literary Speakeasy on April 23rd at 8 pm.
To celebrate the unsilenceable voices of censured writers and our April issue, we’re taking a trip to Prohibition-era New York. There will be banned book readings by time-traveling authors. There will be defiantly free-flowing libations, and a sinful dessert bar. (Plus, we have a few surprises stashed up our sleeves.)
Dress to impress Zelda Fitzgerald.
Costumes will be rewarded.
The best part? Well, the fine literature and company, of course.
The very-close-second-best part? You get all this (including the two-hour open bar), for $15 admission, plus a $5 donation to our indomitable partners at the Doe Fund, who work to support formerly homeless and incarcerated New Yorkers as they find their voices. For more, click here.
Congratulations to Fordham graduate student Jordan Windholz. He has been selected by Averill Curdy for the 2014 Vassar Miller Prize in poetry for his collection Other Psalms. His book will be published by University of North Texas press in Spring 2015.
