While State Upward Bound Math-Science (UBMS) program at WSU focuses on preparing students for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, their students also have a creative side. Recently, four Wichita State UBMS participants were published in the Mikrokomos program. Nayeli Villalobos and Setarah Soureshjani; Alissa Brown and Kenly Nicolas-Estrada, UBMS alumni, submitted writing samples they developed during their summer 2021 creative writing class. The class was taught by Robert Yates Wichita State graduate instructor.
Mikrokosmos is the literary journal of WSU’s Master of Fine Arts program. It accepts written non-fiction and fiction submissions from all students and alumni at WSU. UBMS participants would like to thank Mikrokomos for the opportunity they gave to these youth leaders to express their voices.
