That awesome writing program I applied for recently at the very last second before deadline?


Yeah! They want me to start in the spring semester~~!!! I am very pleased they loved my work!

Deets: This is a unique, individualized course of study developed by the guy who created the AMAZING writing program at SMU (Southern Methodist U). I have taken several classes there over the last few years, and already know a few folks in the program from my various writers groups. You write for panel of professors culled from several universities, and then they also pair you more intimately with professional, successful mentors who get your work. Some of the mentors recently: Galway Kinnell, Kaye Gibbons, Albert Goldbarth, Benjamin Alire Saenz, Al Young, Li-Young Lee, Jimmy Santiago Baca, and Mark Doty. It’s 3 year program equivalent to an MFA study, all concentrated on honing your craft. I’ll be doing 50% work study and on a payment plan for the rest of it.

I am going in Monday to meet with the director!!


Maybe I was supposed to stay in Dallas for awhile afterall?
