Viva voce: done!
I’m thrilled and delighted to share with you all that I defended my dissertation, Holy City, on July 26 and have achieved my PhD in Creative Writing!
I “passed with minor corrections,” which everyone gets in the Creative Writing program. It simply means I’ll get a revision letter, make the changes they suggest, and turn it in. Once the internal examiner approves it, it’s off to the Registrar for the final wrap-up and paperwork.
Mostly I just want to know: When can I order my doctoral robes??

I am delighted to hear of your success, Shelley. I knew you would pass. Enjoy wearing the fancy robes and the funny hat.
Aw, bless you, my friend. If it hadn’t been for you I’d’ve just flailed around for months. You were my lantern in the woods! –Shelley
