Books by Center Graduates

This is a selection of recent book publications by Center for Writers graduates, along with an occasional note about awards won. The Center is proud to help new writers find their voices, and to find publication, when that time comes. These graduates of the Center for Writers, among many others, have distinguished themselves in the literary community, and we are pleased to be able to give them notice here.
