franz, i'm from portland and have six applications out right now.
Where are you applying to? Fiction or poetry?
I'm in fiction, applying to 8 places: Iowa, Washington, Brown, Cornell, JHU, Emerson, UMass-Amherst, and the obligatory Stegner Fellowship lottery ticket.
What part of town are you in? I live in SE. Sad at the thought of leaving Portland...
