Stegnermania...have a seat in the siege perilous. If you dare.
People are venting over their chances with the Stegner program. I'm not interested. I'm still going through the regualr MFA application process. What makes the Stegner fellowship so coveted? Honestly? Is it a "more creative" substitute for a Phd? The Stegner program selects ten people from an application pool of 1300 + each year. It's called a "writer-in-residence" program with no degree awarded once two years are over. What makes it so special? May I ask?
