Idaho Programs

Curious in Connecticut writes...

I've got a tentative list of about 15 schools that needs some narrowing down; the list includes some of your top twenty, as well as a couple that I as of yet don't know too much about. Mainly, the programs at Boise State and the University of Idaho. (I really like the state!) Other then what I found on the program websites, they seem pretty mysterious to me. Do you--or anyone else out there--have any information?

CiC, I have a friend who went to Boise State, liked it a lot, then published her novel soon after her program experience. I like that town too. I wouldn't mind living in Boise. Lots to do in the outdoors, and I like that funky downtown.

I really don't know anything about the U of Idaho graduate program, but maybe some of our readers do. And perhaps someone will have further insights into Boise State.

Doesn't Denis Johnson live in Boise? Can't be too bad.

I am in the U of I MFA program and it's wonderful. The faculty is sharp: Daniel Orozco (BASS) is incredible, and he's about to blow up; Kim Barnes (Pulitzer finalist) has a novel coming out this fall; Bob Wrigley has too long a list to mention.
The program is close and does a great job of getting students (and faculty) together socially. Part of the reason for this is the classes are really small - this semester, most of the workshops have 6 students.
Downtown Moscow is small and really cozy. 2 hour drive to sizable mountains for recreation.
