The Free MFA Master Class

  • KN: Raum für Kunst im Kontext 68 Skalitzer Straße Berlin, Berlin, 10997 Germany (map)

This free Saturday seminar provides information and advice on creative writing MFA programs: where to go, how to get in, whether you should pay for it (probably not!), and how they help (and don't help) writers' careers. We'll talk about the application process, offer tips for the writing sample, and field questions about full-time vs. low-residency, large vs. small, NYC vs. anywhere else, and other concerns. We'll also teach generative writing exercises, describe our experiences reading hundreds of MFA applications, advise you on personal statements, résumés, and letters of recommendation, and critique sample applications.
