Re: [curly] MFA Program at San Francisco State?

Curly, the MFA isn't job insurance. Teaching jobs at the collge level are scarce, and nearly all of them go to folks with impressive publishing credentials. The ones that are left are adjunct spots for teaching freshman comp--a far cry from creative writing.

Do yourself a favor and contact the faculty members of the MFA programs in your area. Invite them to get a cup of coffee. Ask about what you'll need to be an attractive candidate for teaching positions.
