For 25 years, fiction and non-fiction writers have come to the University of New Orleans’ MFA program to hone their skills. This panel features five of the many prose writers who have gone on to great success after leaving the classroom. Award-winning novelists Skip Horack (The Other Joseph), Nicholas Mainieri (The Infinite), and Amanda Boyden (Babylon Rolling) will read from recent work, as will creative non-fiction writers Juyanne James (The Persimmon Trail and Other Stories) and Brenda Quant. The writers will then be open to discussion/questions on any topics relating to the craft or impact of prose.
