Limited to 12 students.
Applying to graduate programs in creative writing can be daunting, but it can also be exciting, rewarding, and even fun! In this seminar we'll cover the basics and initial questions of application research (Is an MFA the right step for me? What schools are a good fit for my goals? Low-residency or full-residency? Where do I begin?), the ins and outs of preparing your application materials (such as the Statement of Purpose, Letters of Recommendation, and the ever-important Writing Sample) and the types of programs and options available. You will also have the opportunity to receive feedback on your application materials.
Please join us Friday, October 24, at 7:00 pm for a Literary Salon with poet Erika Meitner.
Poet Erika Meitner will talk with fellow poet Kevin McFadden about the idea of poetry as documentary: what happens when you take on an assignment to report on an entire city—in verse? In 2010, Meitner went to Detroit on assignment for VQR to find out the answer. In the process, she discovered new poetic tactics for documenting her own personal struggles in an unflinching way. Free and open to the public.
