10 tips for MFA students – Writer’s Digest
Whether you’re already in a creative writing program or knee-deep in research plans for the next academic year, I hope you’ll pick up the September issue of Writer’s Digest. I had the pleasure of penning the MFA Insider column with my article, “10 Tips for Maximizing Your MFA Experience” (page 20-21).
Within the article, a handful of directors, faculty, students, and alumni share some of their top ideas for ways students can fully engage in and benefit from a two or three year program. Interviewees include Daniel Mueller (Iowa), Millicent Accardi (USC), Claudia Manley (Columbia), Jeanne Gassman (Vermont), Derek Alger (Columbia), Melissa Hart (Goddard), Valerie Wetlaufer (Florida State), Eileen Pollack (Michigan), and Judith Barrington (Alaska).
Have a look and let me know what you think!
