My First Published Piece!

Today, when I got home for my lunch break, I was very excited to find an envelope with my name on it! Tucked inside were my five copies of Penn-Union. Penn-Union is a student literary journal, put together by the MA in Writing at Johns Hopkins program for each graduating thesis class. Students submit a portion of their work to be included. I submitted the opening of my book, a little teaser for anyone who might be interested in YA literature.

This is the first time I've ever gotten to have my work published. While it's not a traditional journal in the sense that it is open to public submissions, it's still an honor to be included in the biannual Johns Hopkins Journal. I must say that it's very exciting to see your work in print amongst nearly thirty other magnificent writers.

I'm extremely proud of our Fall Semester class, and proud to call myself a Hopkins Graduate! Congrats to my fellow thesis members, can't wait to see my Homewood ladies this weekend!
