    Hi, Lindsay. Your LinkedIn info lists you as an English major at MSU. I hear that you were also a professional writing major … or that you took PW courses. As the current director of the PW major at MSU, I’m curious. Would you be willing to clarify for me? Thank you for considering this request. AND congratulations on earning a poetry prize! Stuart
