Hi all, Just found this discussion group and, as I'm thinking of
Looking for Grads & Students of Low-Residency MFAs
[In reply to]
applying to low-res programs this fall, was elated with the discovery.
I have, however, some of the same concerns as Olette. For $5,000 per
semester, I think I'd rather do a full-time program where (I think)
I'm ensured more guidance, peer support and criticism and so on.
Problem is, I live far from such a program and am not in a good
position to move. So, I'm looking at Goddard, Vermont College and
Warren Wilson. Does anyone have further recommendations? I've also
visited the Website for Antioch in L.A., but I haven't heard mention
of it on any of these boards. I'm also looking at workshops,
conferences and retreats and, coincidentally, stumbled upon the
Website for Vermont Studio Center yesterday. Susan, I'd love to hear
of experience there. Also, has anyone here ever attended an AWP
conference? The one slated for April of next year looks fantastic.
Albany's a long way from my front door, but I'm giving serious thought
to making the trek. Again, would love feedback. Thanks, Alexis.
