Lately it seems this blog has focused more on itself and its contributors than its purpose and intent. I hope we'll see more MFA-related posts in the future. Thanks.

Welcome, Jess. Looking forward to hearing more from you. Let us know how you do in the coming year. I'm heading into my second now, and I have to say that the first was full of surprises. So much of the MFA experience is not at all what one might expect--particularly if, like me, you're not a veteran workshopper [starting to feel like one now ;) ] And on the other hand, so much of the experience is more challenging and rewarding than I imagined it might be.

Good luck.

Hello there...I'm about to start my first year in a program, too. (Sounds like rehab when I put it that way.)

Best of luck and I look forward to your hearing your thoughts as the year moves on.
