All Levels. Where are you going with your writing? This workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about taking the next step toward a degree in creative writing. What is an MFA program? What are the options, and what can one expect in such a program? We’ll explore these questions and your own writing goals. If an MFA is in your future, you’ll learn how to apply to top programs and how to balance work life with writing and graduate school.
