Re: [sharonlouise] MFA at UC Riverside

I got your reply and hope this write up helps. I love the professors and the program is great. My only difficulty has nothing with the program but how I am reacting to it. Sometimes I get so sucked into the "program life" I forget about my previous and outside life as a writer/artist. As advice to any writer going to a program, it's been really important to live and maintain that life the most. MFA school is polishing my technique and craft, it does not supply my themes, it does not alleviate the struggle to promote oneself as an artist, and it is a temporary community.

Please see my write up in this link for more info. I hope you apply. There are many talented professors and students here. In 10 years, I think the name will retroactively be more valued cause we're so young.
