William Garten ’18

During my MFA in Creative Writing at Ashland I wrote my thesis “The Beginning of Trouble” and it was published by Main Street Rag out of Charlotte, NC under its new title “Asphalt Heart” upon my graduation in August 2018. Over half of my thesis also was published in literary magazines during my graduate studies at Ashland. If not for my excellent experience and my professors’ guidance this poetic dream would have never come true.
