Wait, did I read your bio wrong? I just saw that you are in San Marcos, TX, not at Columbia. Either way -- welcome. :) (I grew up in San Antonio.)

Dear Nelly,
It's really wonderful to have you here, I just did some reading about you and your work (got to you through Angie Cruz's page) and wanted to say, among other things, that I got my MFA at Columbia too -- how are things there? Hope you find this a supportive, productive place to be. We'll be doing some reorganization of the main page next week that should help make that much more true, so stay tuned.
Warm best,
Kamy

"I'd definitely agree.  I remember watching the Benny Hill Show back in the day, let's say versus In Living Color and The Simpsons, it's all different.  I think it only makes sense that what we find funny is related to what…"
