If I don't get the funding for NU...I'll know by April 15th, I'm going to Sewanee. Just love Erin McGraw's writing, mine is similar but obviously not as accomplished.
Sewanee is only in the summer for 6 weeks, so I cd. still work as part-time faculty in Chicago the rest of the year and get the $5500 tuition, which is only due once a year. Plus of course flying to Nashville, which is really cheap.
The major thing that worries me is "officially" writing and meeting only in summer. Not much contact for a sociable person like me.
I have a local workshop with a great writer and teacher, Paul McComas, but it meets for 6 weeks at a time, and then there is a 6-8 week hiatus between classes, which drives me crazy.
I am so happy writing though, that I know I have to have a writing home. That is why I'm getting another degree at this stage in my career.
Yes, like everyone else, I'd also like to be published.
