The Messenger is the bi-annual alumni newsletter for American University's MFA Program in Creative Writing. Features include updates on alumni, faculty, and events taking place throughout the semester, such as our Visiting Writers Series. Often it will feature an interview with a visiting writer or short works by current students.
