McNeese State University Master of Fine
Arts student Matthew Moniz has been accepted into two prestigious summer
workshops – the 2019 Community of Writers Poetry Workshop held in Squaw
Valley, Calif., and the Tin House Summer Workshop at Reed College in Portland,
Both workshops are highly competitive and
participants were selected based on the quality of their written work.
A native of Alexandria, Va., Moniz is
currently a second-year poetry student at McNeese. He received his bachelor’s
degree from the University of Notre Dame, where he majored in English and
"I’m excited to take everything I’ve
learned in the classroom and workshops at McNeese and to build on it at both
these workshops this summer,” Moniz says.
Community of Writers Poetry Workshop takes place June 22-29.
During the weeklong event, attendees will workshop their poetry, attend panels,
talks and readings, and work one-on-one with staff poets.
Tin House Summer Workshop, July 7-14, features workshops, seminars, career panels
and readings by prominent contemporary writers. Attendees will also have networking
opportunities with Tin House editors and guest agents.
