1. Wentzel, Marie-Monique. The Woods Were Never Quiet.

Degree: Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in Creative Writing, English, 2011, Portland State University

The five stories in this collection are an exploration of realist fiction through a variety of narrative points of view and a diversity of characters. The stories explore issues of class, age, work and family, but in each piece, the characters struggle in their own way to discover a sense of belonging in their own lives. Central to each of these stories is a sense of place. All are set in the American west, most in rural California and the land and activities of place provide not only a specific landscape, but often a limitation, a narrative element against which the characters both resist and find their truest home. Advisors/Committee Members: Charles D'Ambrosio.
