The Latest From MARY:

Odes To Our Undoing

This collection of writing was conceived of and edited by graduate students in the MFA program at Saint Mary’s College, Moraga, California, initially as part of a course taught by Professor Matthew Zapruder in Fall, 2020. The Saint Mary’s College MFA program would like to thank the RiskPress Foundation, and in particular Charlie Pendergast and Kevin Connor for their ongoing support of our students, who have benefited so greatly from their generosity. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the scholarship fund of the Saint Mary’s College MFA program, which benefits graduate students in need, particularly from under-represented communities, so that they can pursue their creative educations.
