The MFA Years will follow 12 first-year creative writing MFAs in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction through their time in graduate school. I hope we'll be able to shed some light on the creative writing MFA application process, MFA writing workshops, teaching, and anything else that pops up along the way. In addition to our regular contributors, we're looking for other creative writing MFA students to guest post on the blog and share insights into the programs they're attending.
