MFA to Appear in Top Magazine in W’18

02/2017 – Claire Luchette (MFA Fiction ’17)’s story, “New Bees,” has been selected to appear in the Winter 2018 issue of  Ploughshares, one of America’s most prestigious literary magazines.

“The story’s about a group of Midwestern nuns who take a trip in their ancient minivan to buy 12,000 bees from a lascivious apiarist.

I wrote the story in summer 2016, when I was wildly broke and thinking often of my high school economics teacher, a Catholic nun who liked to tell me, without provocation, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” In the story, the nuns are interested in making things last—that’s very much informed by Sister Therese.”

Congratulations, Claire!
