Man, new programs are popping like corn around here. Tory sends us this email...
UCSD is apparently initiating an MFA Program in Creative Writing. I don't know any of the application details as there has not been much information put out, but a page exists here: http://literature.ucsd.edu/grad/mfawriting.html announcing the new program, which will apparently be taking applications this fall.
UCSD could have the potential of being a good program, especially for Southern CA. They already have Rae Armantrout, an important L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poet and the unique Sarah Shun-lien Bynum in fiction, and the undergraduate course offerings seem fairly comprehensive given the current lack of an MFA program.
I thought I should let you know about this, so you could announce it on the blog. Hope this interests you!
