#mtsuwrite's #crativewritingconference will feature an ekphrastic #poetryexhibit. "20/20 Focus on Italy" seeks to unite immersive aspects of visuals and text to widen the realm of interpretation. Twenty poets were asked to respond to 20 images from TN photographer and MTSU Write mentor, Terry Price, and the results were quite profound. Join us on September 30 and experience these unified media and see the results for yourself. 🤓✍️📚📖 About the Photographer: Terry Price is a Tennessee-based writer and photographer with an MFA in writing from Spalding University.

Excalibur Press just nominated MTSU Write Alumnus Amber Colleen Hartfor the GLCA New Writers Award! Congratulations, Amber!

Amber Colleen Hart is an award-winning fiction writer and graduate of MTSU Write, Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU)’s creative writing program. Amber’s short stories have been published in Neon, Cheat River Review, Storgy, Gravel: A Literary Journal, The Danforth Review, Lumina Journal, Ponder Review, and Darkhouse Books Descansos Anthology, Words from the Wayside. Her short stories were finalists in the Leslie Garrett Fiction Award and Lumina Fiction Award (judged by Roxane Gay.) Amber’s short story “Teddy’s Dead” earned her a Write Well Award in 2015.

Amber was born and raised in the Detroit Metropolitan area. She earned her BS in Social Work and spent years working in some of the toughest inner cities in Michigan. Some of her experiences as a social worker became the nuggets from which she develops both character and plot—these nuggets are sorted, filtered, polished, augmented and shaped into unforgettable stories. She has since left social work to pursue a career in writing. She was invited to be a speaker at Middle Tennessee State University’s 2016 Writing Conference, where she engaged in lecture/discussion at a session on “Finding Your Literary Voice.” In the future, Amber hopes to continue publishing short stories, write a novel, and engage in more public speaking about writing in general and her collection in particular.

Amber’s debut collection of short stories, No Landscape Lasts Forever, was published August 2016, earned a silver medal in the 2017 Independent Book Publisher’s Awards, and has been reviewed by Cheat River Review and Lumina. Cheat River Review said of her work, “Be warned: This collection leaves the reader in that same lonely circle of wanting and not having more, more, more.” •
