Meet Tricia Savelli. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, she graduated from Saint Mary’s College of California with a BA in English in 2014. She teaches undergraduate creative writing at Fresno State. Tricia feels extremely grateful to Fresno State for the opportunity to teach, and also to work for the Philip Levine Prize for Poetry book contest, The Normal School literary magazine, and the Graduate Writing Studio. She thanks her parents for their support, and she knows full well that without them, none of her grad school accomplishments would have been possible. After finishing her MFA, she hopes to spend more time traveling, hiking, writing, and enjoying time with her family.
Tricia defended her thesis manuscript on April 7. (Facebook invite)
