The Creative Writing Program at Illinois State University is proud to acknowledge Jane L. Carman (PhD), Steve Halle (PhD), Kathleen Miller (PhD), Theresa A. O'Donnell (PhD), and Holms Troelstrup (MA 2010). These students are among approximately 50 outstanding contributors to the forthcoming anthology The Dirty Fabulous.
Their innovative work was selected among a highly respected and competitive field of text submissions. It includes "CC Shaboom" by Jane L. Carman; "Queemy" "Two yoo-hoos" and "I took Dove soap" by Steve Halle; "Runny," "Fickling," and "Morning Sick" by Theresa A. O'Donnell; and "Within Mutiny" by Holms Troelstrup.
The Dirty Fabulous is edited by award-winning writer Debra Di Blasi and will be published by Jaded Ibis Press, which author Tantra Bensko calls "possibly the most creative, boldly imaginative press of them all."
The Creative Writing Program would like to congratulate all five writers and wish them continued success. They are clearly deserving of such recognition.
