FDU MFA Alums:
Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons received her MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Fairleigh Dickinson University and combined her love for theater and writing to create No, YOU Tell It! – a series that supports storytellers as they strengthen their true-life tale on the page and experience someone else’s story on stage. No, YOU Tell It! is a reading series that “switches-up” the storytelling. Each performer flips scripts with a partner to present the other’s story.
Raquel I. Penzo is a Brooklyn, NY, native of Dominican descent who has carved a career for herself as a writer, editor, and literary event curator. She hosts the New Voices Reading Series each quarter in NYC and works as a copywriter at Brooklyn Public Library. Raquel authored the self-published My Ego Likes the Compliments…And Other Musings on Writing, and the short stories, “Grey Matter” (Blue Lake Review), “Perspective on a Murder” (Mason’s Road), “On a Blue Day” (You Should Be Here), and “Enfermos” (Rose Red Review). An anthology of works from participants of her reading series was released on April 2014. Visit Raquel online at RaquelPenzo.com.
