    West Egg Literati

    We are writers and readers associated with the The Creative Writing Programs at Hamline. Membership is open to any graduate student in the MFA programs at the university, including the Low-Residency MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults program. West Egg Literati is responsible for creating and fostering community within the The CWP as well as with the writing world at large.

    With the start of each Fall term, West Egg Literati hosts a welcoming event for all incoming MFA students as part of the orientation evening events. West Egg promotes community for CWP students, thereby strengthening the program. Contact via email at: westegg@hamline.edu  for more information.

    rock, paper, scissors

    West Egg Literati is also the proud home of the literary magazine, rock, paper, scissors. 
The magazine is devoted to publishing work that contributes to the literary and social discussion, and that is written by current graduate students in the MFA programs. It is published annually by MFA students and contains poetry, essays, interviews, creative nonfiction, and fiction.
