Hi All. This from Martina at MFA Connect:
For anyone looking into, or already enrolled in an MFA, we are a group of students who have started a collective online, where you can research all current programs, organized by state. As of right now this resource can save perspective students time by providing an easily researchable database. In the future we hope to have more personal information available, collected from students and graduates from each program. We aim to provide as much relevant information for perspective students as we can, and the goal is to make this information as personal as possible.
This is however only part of what the collective is about. The other goal of this project is to allow MFA students a chance to share news, knowledge, and resources. We hope that the project will grow into a substantial online creative writing magazine, written by creative writing students. Since many of us in these programs will at one point be responsible for educating others on the craft of writing, we encourage as many students as possible to use the collective as a way of spreading ideas which will be useful to all interested readers of the website.
So, we are calling on any MFA students who might be interested to help out with the collective, who would like to share experiences, news, or even a post about the writing process. All MFA students and faculty are welcome to be a part of this project, and so is all relevant information. Just follow our submission guidelines online.

We hope this project will provide a valuable resource for those interested in the MFA experience. If you have any questions or would like to help out, please contact us. We would love to hear from you. If you are an MFA student, please forward this information on to your fellow students, and let them know about the collective.
