Today, I've completed all my applications for graduate school. Ten schools, applications are complete and paid for and at least three letters of recommendation have been sent to each school.

The schools I've applied to are:

  • University of Iowa Non-Fiction Writing Program
  • University of California at Riverside Creative Writing and Writing for the Performing Arts
  • Otis College of Art and Design MFA Writing Program
  • Mount St. Mary's College MFA Creative Writing Program
  • Louisiana State University MFA Creative Writing Program
  • University of Pittsburgh MFA Creative Writing Program
  • University of Alabama MFA Creative Writing Program
  • University of Arizona MFA Creative Writing Program
  • University of New Mexico MFA Creative Writing Program
  • University of New Orleans MFA Creative Writing Program

Now I want to contract a case of amnesia, until I hear from each school some time in March.

You're ready to pack up & go off to college, even a semester at a time?

Wow indeed; guess I've turned into a stick-in-the-mud.

Wishing you lots of luck!

Wow!! So impressive. Of course, I'm biased toward U of AL, where I graduated, and Mt. St. Mary's, where I taught for eight years. And Deanne Stillman at UCR is an excellent teacher and writer. I took one of her classes at UCLA Extension. Good Luck! I can't wait to hear which one you choose.

Hi, Scout! Email me so I know how to contact you. I'd love to hear more about both Alabama and MSM.

Wow! That's quite a list. Fingers crossed that the best school for you comes to the top of the list.
