Briana Swain, MFA Poetry, '18

Briana's book review for Arisa White's latest poetry collection, Who's Your Daddy, was recently published on Pleiades. Take a look at the article here. Congratulations, Briana!  

Briana Swain believes in herself and the power of her words. She received her MFA in Creative Writing degree from Saint Mary’s College of California and BA in Theatre from CSU Sacramento. She writes, ultimately, to further invest in her relationship with self and the “other,” whatever that means. Swain has received a scholarship to The Juniper Summer Writing Institute and currently lives in her hometown of Sacramento grappling with how to extend her creative practice beyond a degree.
