“When I was notified about the award, I'm not sure what the most exciting prospect was: going to Madrid for a month or studying with such terrific writers. After the first day of class, I knew I'd be a better writer by the end of the summer's workshop. At the end of the month, not only was my writing better, but the way I saw myself as a writer had changed. And that is perhaps one of the most important tasks any MFA program can undertake, to impart to students not only the craft but the confidence and empowering practices of writing. Add to this the bonus of getting to know and love an amazing bunch of students and faculty. I can't see how it's possible to go to Madrid with the UNO people and not come out the other side of it all as a better writer with the support of a close writing community.” --Jill Drumm, nonfiction winner, 2006.
