Chatham: the MFA program: What has been heard/found out about this program? When I look at it, it sounds really good. But, I haven't seen anything about it anywhere. Does anyone have an opinion? Know someone that has studied there? Thanks!
Anyone have anything special to note about Chatham University? Here are the rarer points about their MFA program that my database has picked up:
-it has a Creative Nonfiction track that focuses on ENVIRONMENT, NATURE, & TRAVEL writing as well as a Poetry and Fiction track; so if any of those subjects interest you, it's well worth a look
-it's a PRIVATE school, so for ALL students tuition is about $26 K for the whole 2-year degree
-the school is SMALL: its undergraduate population is only about 1800, and I gather the graduate population is even smaller than that
-there are ONLY 2 RECOMMENDATIONS in the application rather than the usual 3; the GRE is NOT REQUIRED
-they accept applicants in the SPRING as well as the fall
-they have a special scholarship for an incoming student with an interest in environmental and nature writing, which entails $10 K per year
