The MFA Handbook is really getting slammed this week on Amazon.com. Complaints include the fact that I separated Residency from Low-Residency Programs in the appendix section; the annoyance that I use dashes in my prose; and that "The author also has a weird fixation on finances."
Some other criticisms are justified. I wrote at the beginning of the book: I'm just the bus driver, and that's true. I don't claim to know everything about every program.
I've asked this before on the blog, and I'm sorry to ask it again: If the book was helpful to you in some way, I'd really appreciate it if you could counter-balance some of these Amazon reviews. Or rip it if you'd like, but either way: I'd appreciate comments about what the book is and does, and how it was helpful or not helpful to you.
Thanks. Link to Amazon here.
