Mai Perkins MFA ’06 published her first manuscript, The Walking Nerve-Ending. “TWNE is a 120-page collection that takes readers on a fanciful journey. It represents everything love, family, friendship and community, meticulously crafted in rhyming/free-verse poetry and prose. Many of these poems I toiled with during workshop at Sarah Lawrence while working on my MFA with my thesis advisor, Tom Lux.” The Kindle version debuted on Amazon as the "#1 New Release in African American Poetry" during the first week.
