I'm cheating a bit--I did not apply this year, but I'm going to next January. I'm posting here to see if anyone applied to the University of Oregon (my top choice), and if they would be willing to drop me some information/advice about that program specifically. Thanks!

My list is a bit different than most of the posters here. I've applied to schools in the SF Bay Area only (for many reasons, but the biggest one being love...for the area and a certain person). It seems ALL my shcools don't notify applicants till mid-March so, needless to say I am dying of anxiety!! And it's gonna be a long time comin'

@Sarah Allen: I applied to University of Oregon. If you have any questions about the application process, feel free to hit me up in the mailbag or at kelewin@gmail.com

Also, I know I posted my list once here and once on the facebook group (as Kat in both places) before I'd finished applying, so I'll refrain from posting again, just to save Seth's peace of mind. :-)

I'm going nuts with anticipation. I think I'd consent to an afternoon of waterboarding if it meant I could find out right now. cheney said it's not real torture anyway, and cheney's never been wrong before. i think it might be worth it

A new program for you to consider:

www.okcu.edu/english/RedEarthMFA

It’s Your Time

The Red Earth Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing at Oklahoma City University offers you the opportunity to escape your busy life to pursue your writing passions. Housed at a private university in an urban yet quiet setting, the program connects you with experienced creative and professional writers who will nurture your creative talent in workshops, peer groups, and individual instruction. The Red Earth MFA program gives you a chance to concentrate on your writing while working with like-minded communicators who, like you, wish to grow creatively and professionally in a collaborative environment.

Tailored Coursework

The Red Earth MFA is a two-year graduate program. It includes five residencies, one each summer and each winter plus one at the end of the program, for periods of approximately ten days. Students work with faculty mentors to create a manuscript-length work of creative prose in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, or another creative genre with the approval of the program director. The program allows students to continue with their professional lives as they devote short amounts of time to the residencies and then do the their class work remotely from home with the guidance of a faculty mentor.

At the residencies students not only attend classes but also work with a faculty mentor within small workshop groups with their peers. Students will complete twelve hours of course work each fall and spring semester for two years, for a total of 48 hours. Students finish four semesters of off-campus study by completing both packet work with their individual mentor as well as participating in online workshops, fostering a community of writers that is sustained beyond the residencies while allowing the student to return home during the semester’s coursework. The final residency will include a public reading and defense of the thesis.

Strands:

Unique to the Red Earth MFA are the professional writing and pedagogy strands. Students may elect to study with professional writers and writing instructors in online formats during the semester to learn about editing, professional communications, and teaching writing. With approval of the program director and their faculty mentor, students can also elect to do individual study with their faculty mentor in the professional writing or pedagogy strands for credit.

Students who elect to concentrate in either the professional writing or pedagogy strand take a minimum of six credit hours in either concentration. Students can also fashion their own strand concentration with their faculty advisor(s) with the permission of the advisor(s) and program director and do not have to participate in the strands if they choose to focus exclusively on their creative writing.

Please contact MFA Director Danita Berg at drberg @ okcu.edu if you have questions!

I've noticed not too many people are applying to MFA programs in both genres. I'd be interested to hear the struggles of others who had to do that.

For me it included getting two different sets of 3 recommendations (probably unnecessary, but I did it anyway), and then of course the assembling of two different writing portfolios, and two types of statements. It wound up being a pretty huge pain, actually, and I'm not sure I'll do that again next year, if I don't have any luck this time around.

Iowa and Montana allowed for application to multiple genres, so I sent them both my application packets.

Anyone else enjoying the fun of two different genres of applications?
