New and Recent Publications by Low-Res MFA Mentors and Students

And now, for some Public Publication Kvelling –– From the Yiddish word Kveln, to be delighted

According to  kvell:  to be extraordinarily pleased; especially, to be bursting with pride, as over one's family. And we are certainly bursting with pride over the publication of these new books, stories, essays, poems and plays by members of the Miami Low-Res literary family.
