Sandhills Road Trip Writer's Residency
In partnership with the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Society, CSC’s Creative Writing Program sponsored the Sandhills Road Trip Writer’s Residency earlier this semester. The residency included a reading at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, as well as a road trip writing residency through Nebraska’s Sandhills. The 2020 recipient of the residency was Leslie Pietrzyk. Leslie is the author of the novel Silver Girl and the collection of linked short stories, This Angel on My Chest (University of Pittsburgh Press), which won the 2015 Drue Heinz Literature Prize and was selected by Kirkus Reviews as one of the 16 best story collections of the year. Her other novels include Pears on a Willow Tree and A Year and a Day.
