    Interesting read. Do you have a similar post about selecting an MFA program?

      Thanks for your question. I haven’t done a post about selecting an MFA program… yet. But now that you bring it up, I think I will. I do think much of what I had to say about the importance of community, in particular, would apply when selecting an MFA program. But there are other considerations as well. I’ll put the question to some of my classmates and see what we can come up with by way of useful advice.

    If you decide to do the MFA post I would like to submit some information about the Creative Writing MFA at the New School here in New York.

    Dody, thanks. I am going to do a post on what a young writer should look for in an MFA program, and am in the process now of asking various folks who run programs or teach or mentor young writers for their input. So I’d love to have your thoughts on the topic, and any info about the New School you’d care to send. Thanks much!
