Kim Rogers is in her second year of the MFA program. She is currently at work on a book-length memoir about her travels to and from Zimbabwe over the last decade. As part of her MFA fieldwork, she returned to Zimbabwe in October 2007 for several months where she visited old friends, collected data for her memoir, and taught poetry, nonfiction, and business writing at the nonprofit learning village, Kufunda Village (www.kufunda.org). Her work has recently appeared in the Florida Review, Potomac Review, and the Briar Cliff Review. Her chapbook, After the Flood in Mozambique, based on her Fulbright year in Zimbabwe, was published as part of an Iowa State arts grant. She completed her MA in English at ISU in 2004 with a yet-to-be-published (damn you first book contests) poetry manuscript, Magic and Other Explanations. In between her MA and MFA she worked for three years as the managing editor of the National Women’s Studies Association Journal.
