Good news–great news, in fact. Gene Luen Yang is joining the faculty of our Hamline low-residency MFAC program. Gene was a guest speaker last January, and we all knew then that we wanted him to join us in a formal role. Now it’s happened. He’ll begin teaching at the Summer 2012 residency. The two best things about this: 1. We’ll add a terrific teacher and writer, and in doing so expand the program’s reach into writing for graphic novels and comics; 2. We now have three very nice guys on the faculty. Welcome, Gene.
