Re: [DylanTaiNguyen] Perfect job for MFA students [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi everyone,
In the job posting below, I misspelled my email address.
It should be: MeritScholarsBilling@gmail.com.
Thank you!

Dear friends,

I apologize if this is not the ideal forum to post this. But... I'm a fiction writer—and MFA graduate—who's also a small business owner. I'm looking for a part-time office assistant; what I'm offering would be, I think, an ideal job for any MFA student. Please read below. I'd rather offer the job to a fellow scribe than anyone else!

Thank you for your time.

Re: [filmicfront] Hunter College MFA [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm new to this forum, and this thread seems to have been dead many years ago, but I was curious if anyone was applying to Hunter this year? I just sent my manuscript off for Fiction. I'm terrified, needless to say.

Buy this book!

Terrified? If they don't accept you, the won't automatically forward your name to Al Qaeda. Not even the IRS. If they don't accept you, you can apply someplace else, and while you're waiting for a response to that place (or those places) you can work on your fiction, meet some nice fellow-writer at Starbucks and have a brief, passionate romance that is build on critiquing each other's work, take a job in a travel agency helping other people fulfill their dreams, and start a habit of regular blood donation.

A rejection from a graduate program is much like a rejection from a magazine: it means they think you aren't a good fit for what they're doing. It might possibly mean that you aren't good enough (after all, some people aren't), but it might not, and you'll never know for certain. It isn't something personal. Consider that if you apply to four programs and are accepted at all of them, you'll be sending out rejection letters to three of them. That won't be personal, either.

Just remember to keep breathing and keep writing.

LOL, Pongo! Not of course about the young lady, but your reply.
I see now how much fun I've been missing, really. :)
