New book reviews for Spun Stories!

Everyone,

So sorry you haven’t heard from me recently. For those of you who don’t know, I took off a couple of years to do an MFA in imagesCreative Writing at Lesley University’s low-residency program. (Lesley is in Cambridge, MA). In any event, I’m nearly at the end of my time there, but this last (fourth) semester has been particularly grueling. Hence, no posts.

Now that I’ve got my second submission in, I have a window of time to put up some new reviews of books that I met in the Fall. I hope you enjoy reading them.

If all goes according to plan, I hope to graduate this June. Please keep your fingers crossed!

Happy Thanksgiving from Norway

Everyone,

As I mentioned before, I’m working on an MFA in Creative Writing at Lesley University. I’m also staying in Oslo, Norway for this academic year as my husband won a Fulbright to be a visiting researcher at Oslo University.

For these reason, I’m going to give this blog a rest for December and most of January and hope to be back next spring with something to entertain and provoke.

I hope you all enjoy this picture taken this Fall in Lillehammer, Norway. Heather is something that’s used instead of flowers at this time of year. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

All Best Wishes,

CynthiaSignature

Happy Fall Everyone!

This Fall, I’m going to confine myself to book reviews of various books I’ve been reading over the spring and summer. Much though I’d like to, I can’t do more than that as I’m in my last year at Lesley University, working on my QuillMFA in creative writing. If all goes according to plan (fingers crossed) I should graduate in June 2015.

I hope you enjoy reading these reviews, and as always, please comment in the comment box at the bottom of the page.

Have a wonderful fall!

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these lessons on craft gleaned from my first semester at Lesley. As June approaches, I have to disappear to prepare for my third residency that takes place from June 19-29 this year.

I look forward to reconnecting with you all later this year! Meanwhile, have a wonderful summer…

I’m currently enjoying my residency at Lesley University in Cambridge MA…

LesleyLogoEveryone,

Just in case you’re wondering where I’ve gone, I’m currently participating in the low-residency program at Lesley University, which means that I have to travel to Cambridge MA twice a year for 10 days a piece.  As I sit here in my room at Mary Prentiss typing these words, I am coming to the end of my second residency. Which means that I’m about to begin my second semester in the MFA Program for Creative Writing.

If all goes according to plan, I should graduate June 2015. In the meantime, expect to see more posts in this space, starting early February. Mondays, I will devote to craft, Wednesdays to book reviews, and Fridays to anything interesting, intriguing or fun that catches my eye!

Happy Spring!
