Chris Arnold, MFA Blog Contributor
Chris Arnold is a second-year fiction student in the MFA program at Purdue University. He is also assistant director of the program, following in the footsteps of Daryll Lynne Evans, herself a prolific contributor to the MFA Blog.
Prior to graduate school, Chris studied journalism at the University of Oregon and taught high school English in South Texas. He was an honorable mention in the 2007 Atlantic Monthly Student Fiction Contest, and winner of the 2008 Playboy College Fiction Contest. His writing can be found in The Northwest Review, Pacific Review, Slice Magazine, and elsewhere.
Chris would be glad to answer questions about the application process, working for a literary magazine, time management, teaching, or anything else that might come up.
