Hey Miss Esquire!
Re: [MissEsquire] Choosing an MFA Program (2008)
Thanks for your thoughts - it's amazing as all the universities you mentioned I have applied for! Anglia, Edinburgh and Bath Spa. So far rejected from Anglia (expected with over 400 applicants and they only accept 12 people!) but I have an interview at Bath and I haven't heard back from Edinburgh yet.
I have just been having a look on the internet and I wonder how good Bath Spa actually is? It doesn't have overly good rankings in the university tables but apparently the creative writing course is very, very good. However, I did read something yesterday, that apparently they have over 600 people studying writing there??? Surely not for the Masters Programme?
Have you heard anything about Birkbeck in London? Equally apparently Andrew Motion, the director at Anglia has recently moved to Royal Holloway in London; and Manchester now has Martin Amis on it's staff...
It's very difficult to get information on which are the better programmes, where to go, what is considered good - apart from the main ones of coure, like Anglia.
Cheers for all your help!
