Blue was recently accepted into the Creative Writing program at the graduate school of Wilkes University, where he is currently working on his first full-length book of memoir, for his Master of Arts (M.A.).   Following the M.A., he will continue on to his Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.), scheduled for completion in Spring 2017.
