Dateline: January 15, 2011

Seaside, Oregon

Today, the graduating cohort of Pacific University MFA in Writing celebrate the completion of  two years of hard work.  The ladies of fiction–Loranne Brown, Heather Sappenfield, Sue Staats and Nancy Stebbin–formed a very practical support group during these two years.  We’ve served on each other’s thesis committees.  We read each other’s work, laugh together across long distances, shore up each other’s spirits when exhausted by the insatiable demands of our beloved mentors.  We look forward to applauding each other’s successes in the years ahead.

Known privately as the Pop-up Princesses–“because every book should have a pop-up edition”–we’ve relaunched our blog to reflect the gravitas of our MFAs. Don’t expect us to be serious all the time, if ever, as we continue to share laughter and thoughts on the writing life.
