We received word months ago that Laura Hitt’s piece, “Grown-Ups,” was selected for publication in plain china: Best Undergraduate Writing 2012 and we have been waiting excitedly to see it online.
Here’s what they said:
BENNINGTON, VT – Bennington College has launched the fourth issue of its annual anthology of premier poetry, fiction, and nonfiction selected from more than 80 American undergraduate literary journals. The new, year-round production schedule features new work posted monthly from publications of American University, Bard, Bennington, Boston College, Brown, Columbia College Chicago, Grinnell, Harvard, NYU, Susquehanna, Swarthmore, University of Tampa, and UC Berkeley, to name only a few. This is the fourth year of the anthology’s publication.
Issue Four includes work from Colorado, Dartmouth, Emerson, and Prescott Colleges, It also features an honorable mention in poetry—selected by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy K. Smith—and artwork from Quinnipiac University, Oberlin, and Colorado Colleges, and the University of Vermont.
As poetry judge and Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy K. Smith commented, “These young poets make me glad for the work that is in the works, all the poems that will begin, in the next few years, to make their way into wider circulation”— a sentiment that extends to prose writing as well. Check it out.
