MFA Graduate Martin Woodside Going to Romania on a Fulbright Fellowship
The last time SDSU's stellar MFA graduate Martin Woodside was mentioned here it was to advertise his recently published chapbook, Stationary Landscapes (available from Pudding House Press for ten dollars). In addition to having his poetry published, Woodside now has two new impressive accomplishments to add to his literary resume. Woodside answered Fulbright's call and has been offered a fellowship to research poetry in Romania. And yet, this was not enough for the ambitious artist/scholar. He has also won the very prestigious Presidential Fellowship at Rutgers-Camden. Rutgers-Camden are allowing him to defer admission there for a year so he can take the Fulbright in Romania. When Woodside returns from Romania he will begin in the new Childhood Studies Program at Rutgers.
