Most people who read my blog know that I attended an MFA program, but I’m still leery about spending too much time talking about MFA’s because I grow weary of the debate as to whether or not they are beneficial.
Last year I did a post about My MFA Journey. I even hint at myself as an Eternal Student in another post and if you go back to blog posts from 2007-2009 you will definitely see a lot about the MFA as I worked through my program including this last post about my final reading. Feel free to type MFA into the search function on the right and look back. The real meaty ones about the MFA, like I said, are 2007-Jan 2009.
But, in either case, I did a low-residency MFA program and I’m happy to answer questions about the process of applying, going through the program and afterwards here.
I also thought I’d post a link to an article titled Six More Myths about the Creative Writing Master of Fine Arts. And another, bit of a silly link, to a McSweeny’s fiction piece (oh but is it fiction?) about workshopping.
So prepare your questions, I’ll be brutally honest!
And then back with a writing prompt tomorrow
