I know, it’s not a word, but the news in Peauxdunque will not be stopped by the mere limitations of language!
We’ll start big and work BIGger:
(1) Peauxdunque’s Larry Wormington (editor-in-chief of the Peauxdunque Review), has learned that his short story, “Last Known Tomorrow,” will be published by Redivider. The Boston-based literary magazine has previously published such luminaries as George Singleton and Billy Collins (and Maurice Carlos Ruffin), and Larry’s gives them good company.
(2) Kelly Harris DeBerry has been selected by Poets & Writers as their Literary Outreach Coordinator for New Orleans. P&W says of this new program, “As part of a pilot project funded by the Hearst Foundations, Literary Outreach Coordinators will be equal parts community organizers and local correspondents, responsible for increasing awareness of Poets & Writers’ tools and resources for writers with a special focus on the availability of grants through our Readings & Workshops Program. With extensive support from Poets & Writers, Outreach Coordinators will have a unique opportunity to strengthen the literary community and help writers in their city.”
(3) And (trumpets, fanfare), Maurice Carlos Ruffin has been named by LSU as an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing! He will begin teaching in LSU’s MFA program this fall. We’re excited for him, and for his future students.
