 Lindsey Schaffer - Manitou Fellow

Lindsey Schaffer, 2020 Minnesota Street Summer Creative Writing Fellow, shares her work with CSBSJU. She notes, As fellows, we took part in many exciting opportunities including virtual visits with editors from Grey Wolf and Coffee House Press. The experience culminated in a portfolio of 30 pages showcasing writing from each genre and a reading presented by The Literary Arts Institute. As a result of this opportunity and my Writing Essays course with Matt Callahan, my essay was accepted for publication through the online magazine Chronically Lit. I am grateful for these opportunities as they have allowed me to develop my practice and find success when submitting to a variety of publications.
