Another Step Forward

On June 19, 2010, I will become the first MFA graduate from the new Northwestern University MFA-Creative Writing program. I am proud of the achievement, and look forward to setting new goals. This was a long and at times excruciating journey, and I hope to be an inspiration to others. Nothing’s impossible, if you are willing to put in the effort. You can reach any goal if you ignore those who say you are not young or strong or smart enough. If someone else can do something, chances are so can you, although sometimes you have to find your own way to do it. Be strong, be persistent, be successful. Good luck.

    Hello Joyce:
    I have found your “Another Step Forward” on Google in an effort to find your many achievements and to follow your work. I don’t seem able to find how I can read your past and present works and would like to read them all. Congratulations on your work and please advise how I can access the many works you have published. Congratulations on your MFA degree and I wish you all the best. Please keep in touch. Thank you. Dianne Kretschmer
