“Spring Hill’s creative writing major helped reignite my passion for the craft. After working as an editor for The Motley, I gained the skills necessary to succeed as an associate editor for Colorado Review. As a second-year MFA candidate, I feel so fortunate to have spent four years under the nurturing wing of the English department, whose faculty inspired me to take my passion seriously.” – Megan Lear
