Unable to post this until all the writing fellowships responded to me, I can now announce with full vigor and confidence that I will not be a writing fellow for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Here is my great-restraint-of-a-response to that news. Though it doesn’t contain any original writing of my own, it felt right to enlist the writing of others in this poetic release of frustration.

Enjoy. Hopefully this will be the-something-good that came out of the disappointment!
