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.
Another star in our stellar Hamline faculty! This is terrific news!! So happy that Gene will be joining us this summer.
He won't be there until 2012. But you're both happy for the future students, right?
Hey, it'll be my last residency. I'll just have to wring six months' worth of instruction out of him.
Just one more reason to come back for Alumni Weekend.
That's amazing! Congratulations. (I'm all about spreading the graphic novel format love! 🙂
