Actually one of the coolest classes in my MFA was Shakespeare. (Or, actually "Shakesqueer, Play of the Unsaid.") The class even put on a performance of scenes. People went all out, lit students and MFAers bonded, and it looked like a general blast. That semester I took Rushdie instead who um, in my humble opinion (while I love Midnight's Children), doesn't hold up to a entire semester of scrutiny. So we spent half the class on those dastardly, brain-scrambling secondary sources. Ai, Homi Bhabha!
I believe Nebraska takes in 5ish per genre (poetry and prose) but only two per genre get funded. Although it seems all schools change the number year to year. PhDs seem different from MFAs in this regard.
Rejection letter in from Tenn. Considering the odds, I pretty much expected that. Still, I had to try. I love me some Appalachia.
