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.

The first issuie that thomas sabo jewellery online consumers are facing thomas jewellery in India is the narorw range and limited choice of merchandize. Even pandora bracelets the leading sites like ebay.in, indiaplaza.in, indiatimes pandora jewellery or rediff have very liimited range of pandora australia iteems and therefore pandora bracelets are hardly attrractive. I personally searched pandora bracelet many a ties for books and music pandora charms titles amoong other things in the Inddian sites but seldom fouund any thomas sabo australia great product and never thomas sabo excciting prices. In spite of limited rnage still some conssumers want to buy online sabo jewellery just for the sake of convenience but then their expertience is also not good.
