I've been thinking all day about what to write in this last post of 2011. I could have offered you some sort of things-t0-do-t0-get-published list or a best-of post. I could have told you to hurry up and finish your to-do list. I decided not to do that. Instead, I thought about what I wanted to...

I spent the last few weeks getting a 10-page sample of poetry and a 25-page sample of creative writing together for my MFA application.
