NC State Program

Baltimore Bard writes...
What’s the word on the NC State U (Raleigh) Creative Writing MFA? I’m interested in any feedback, especially regarding the fiction program.

This is a brand new program. If anyone has insights, please leave them in the comments section.

I'm headed to the NC State program in August (it was my first choice); it is a new MFA program, but they've been running their MA in Creative Writing for a number of years and produced some impressive students (see Andy Duncan). All of my interactions with the program, from students to faculty, have been positive. I'm quite excited at the opportunity, and turned down much more 'prestigious' programs to attend

My God, that sounds like a marketing line, but it's the truth, honest. My situation is a bit ideosyncratic, as I'm a writer of literary speculative fiction and was drawn by John Kessel's presence, but I think the program is worth a look.
