And Still More Information on Low-Residency/Summer Study MFA/MA Programs

One of the most frequently visited posts here at Practicing Writing is the one that provides a set of links to as many low-residency/summer study MFA/MA programs in creative writing as I've been able to find. I continue to update that link list as often as seems necessary, adding links to new programs I've discovered and trying to keep the links current and accurate. You can see the updated page, now with even MORE program links, right here.

This list can be useful not just for potential students seeking a one-stop shop from which to base their visits to program sites; it's also a useful page for writers who'd like to query program directors about employment possibilities.

I will keep updating that list as I discover relevant new information. Which reminds me: Has anyone been able to locate a Web page for the new program at Drew University (in poetry and poetry in translation) advertised in the latest Poets & Writers? As a loyal albeit former Jersey girl, I'd love to be able to add that one to the list.

I got accepted to Wilkes University MFA Creative Writing program but since I am a Canadian the tuition fees were just too high. I feel stupid for even applying. I guess I will have to look for a Canadian university/college to improve my writing skills. I am upset at myself for not thinking prior to applying to Wilkes. What was I thinking? Well it was my fault and I paid the price.

Sorry to hear about that, Orville. Have you considered the optional-residency program at the University of British Columbia?

Really? UBC has a Residency Program! Oh this sounds interesting thanks Erika for the info!
