CAMILLE ACKER
June 2012

Las Cruces, NM – “Currently, I am in my last year of my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at New Mexico State University. In 2010, I received the Kevin McIlvoy Fellowship at New Mexico State. One of my short stories was a Finalist in Glimmer Train’s Family Matters competition in 2008 and I was honored as the winner of the Unpublished Writer’s Award by Go On Girl! Bookclub in 2005.
     Since 2007, I have been selected to attend a number of workshops around the country. In 2007, I was an attendee of the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Writer’s Week in Washington, DC. The following year, I attended Voices of Our Nations Arts (VONA) in San Francisco and Callaloo Writers’ Workshop in St. Louis, Missouri. I returned to VONA the following year, and this past summer of 2011, I attended a workshop at the Norman Mailer Writers Colony in Provincetown, Massachusetts.”
