Application Help: MFA, PhD, and Fellowship

This course is for writers who have decided that an MFA, PhD, or fellowship program would be useful for them and their careers. This generative course will center on demystifying application processes for graduate programs and creative writing fellowships by including sample statements of purpose, CVs, and additional application materials from poets and writers who have succeeded in achieving post-MFA positions, funding, and/or support.
