In the summer before the second year of my MFA program, my friend and colleague Sarah Menkedick wrote me a long and frantic e-mail.

Ultimately I think I am going to have to let something go, to move closer to one and further from the others.”
We’d been having these conversations all throughout grad school. How were we going to make this writing thing work? I was struggling to define what kind of writer I was—nature writer? Science writer? Neither sounded quite right. Night classes were always…Continue
