KGB: Hofstra MFA Program

Anne Minkowski is in her final year in the Hofstra MFA Program with a concentration in fiction writing. She grew up on Long Island, reading books and telling stories of her own. Her biggest inspirations come from history, music, and the craziness of her own dreams and nightmares.

Jung Tae Hwang is a fiction writer in his first year of the MFA program in Hofstra, with the occasional fits of wanting for his dark fantasy, that of sharing in the fate of Henry Bemis, minus the broken glasses. He is from South Korea, a painfully wondrous place that inspires him to be a writer, for better or for worse.

Tyler Thier lives on Long Island, NY. He has been published in student literary journals and a film magazine. His interests range from avant-garde theatre and cinema to post-apocalyptic video games. On any given day, you can probably find him wandering New York City, sitting anonymously in the darkness of a movie theater, hiding in a labyrinth of bookshelves, or simply eating many, many crêpes.

Courtney Zanosky is a senior in the English Publishing Studies program at Hofstra University, where she serves on the editorial board for the university’s literary magazine, Windmill.  She currently works in the promotions department at Bauer Media, and has previously interned for St. Martin’s Press at Macmillan and at Bellevue Literary Press in New York City. She is an avid reader of creative nonfiction essay collections and has been published in the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society’s online literary journal. She will be attending Texas State University in fall 2017 to pursue her M.Ed in Student Affairs in Higher Education.
