Somewhat Stymied in Germany asks about the Online MFAs at Warnborough University and National University. I’m afraid I don’t know the answers to his questions, but I can post them here and hope that someone will:
(1) Is there a lot of skepticism about these online programs amongst other MFA program faculty and students? If there is such skepticism, please comment about how low-residency MFA programs were viewed back when there were few or none of them around.
(2) Did the low-res programs go through an evolution during which they were viewed skeptically, then as more pioneering, then as simply another option for those who needed more options?
