Re: [jd-] Age of students

Just a bump on this...

Taking workshop courses still... And I still find it beneficial even though it isn't in an "MFA" program per se.

It might not be as effective, but ... it works for me and I'm not really interested in the degree itself more so than writing opportunities, I have no interest in teaching it for instance, plus I have a life, a partner, many things going on. Easier to be younger and just devote yourself to it.

I think right now, given the quality of the classes I am taking right now I might just keep on taking writing workshops a la carte at the university as it is a cheaper route than an MFA and also keeps me writing. I am scared the MFA program would be too inflexible and structured, I have been known to just fly out of the country for months at a time on a travel adventure... I stopped school at some point three times because of that.
