 Nancy Murray

A knack for story-telling.

Student Nancy Murray proves her creative writing chops by discussing therapy via stoop sitting (and storytelling) in Baltimore. Her essay appeared in the Baltimore Post-Examiner .

Our work knows no bounds, especially not those of the classroom.

Our students and faculty are energized and motivated by their own personal projects in addition to their schoolwork. Here's just a small sample of what they get up to beyond the classroom:

Rachel Wooley at John Hewitt festivalProject Spotlight: Armagh Project

Rachel Wooley, current M.F.A. student and editor in chief of the UB Post, participated in the summer 2012 Armagh Project, a monthlong playwriting and poetry residency in Northern Ireland. Here, she presents her poetry at the the John Hewitt International Creative Writing Festival at the end of the residency.

The residency in Ireland was a fantastic experience. I learned as much (or more) exploring the island as I did in class, and all of ti inspired me with regard to both subject matter and process. (Not to mention, I met some great people—both fellow students in the program and those we encountered in Ireland.) The complete cultural immersion was definitely more rewarding than a quick vacation, and I'd love to go again.
