Critical Studies MFA Writing Program Final Thesis Reading: Rachel Kolb, Tracy Rosenthal and Marlene Nichols
CalArts, Butler Building 4 - The Cube
RACHEL KOLB is a fiction writer who loves to play in the world of film and television and is an Associate Editor for Black Clock. Her thesis, 20seven, is a novel about Ridley Marlow, a rock star convinced the 27 Club, which took Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin, Cobain, and Ridley’s father from the world at the age of twenty-seven, is out to get him next.
TRACY JEANNE ROSENTHAL is a pop culture rubbernecker and an NYC traitor to LA. Her writing has been published in The Collagist, GOOD, PANK, and Work Magazines, and is forthcoming in the inaugural Artists Among Artists collection Faggot Dinosaur.
Part writer, part showman, MARLENE NICHOLS knows if you’re not laughing you’re not really living. Raised in the mid-south, she is a transplanted New Yorker who strives to create the kinds of characters Tennessee Williams would have both loved and screwed.
