MFA Prep Class and Consults

Though it's early in the new application season, New York-based writers can get a jump on the process by signing up for an MFA Prep class through Sackett Street Writers' Workshop. There's a new class starting in June, with just a couple of spots still open. The class is open to fiction and nonfiction writers, and the primary focus is on making sure that your writing sample is as strong as it can possibly be. We also spend time workshopping personal statements, and talking about other elements of the application process: funding issues, how to build the best list of schools, where to find information, the pros and cons of being a TA, the importance (or not) of working with teachers whose writing you love, and so on. Graduates of last year's classes have been accepted at some amazing programs: Alabama (full funding), Brooklyn, Columbia, New School, Oregon, SIU in Carbondale (full funding), Indiana, and on and on...

For writers outside of New York, or for those who can't take a workshop for some reason, I offer individual MFA portfolio review services too - see my website, www.nancyrawlinson.com, for more info and shoot me an email if you have any questions.

I'm also leading a 3-hour class on applying for the creative writing MFA. It'll be held in Madison, Wisconsin on September 18 and is offered through UW-Madison's Continuing Studies Program. If you live in the midwest and can't make it to New York, this is another great option.
