Re: [AbbigailRosewood] Columbia admits Fall 2012 [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd say it's more of a craft-oriented personal response/analysis. Someone posted some great advice about a page earlier in this thread, but here's the short cut: http://www.pw.org/...i?post=287663#287663

Also what does a response to a literary works consist of? Is it just a regular literary analysis?

Re: [watermelonsugar] Columbia admits Fall 2012 [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you so much! And do you know anywhere I can go to read works from students admitted to Columbia such as yourself :D? I'm curious as to what is the quality they are looking for. I go to a small school in Southern Oregon so even there is not a lot of competition or even writers who want to write seriously. It's difficult to gauge where I am. If you don't mind or have some free time, could you read my story here:

http://themissingslate.com/2012/06/19/the-banana-tree/

and let me know what you think? I will have another one published soon at Green Hills Literary Lantern by Truman State University and I'm thinking about submitting that one to Columbia but it's not up yet. I would love to hear your opinion on that one too.

Best regards,

Abbi

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.

Fellowships [In reply to] Can't Post

I’m currently 26 years old and I’m working in Japan as a public servant.

A few years later, I’m contemplating quitting my job and going on to graduate school in U.S, in order to learn creative writing. But Columbia MFA program I’m gonna apply to whose tuition is facetiously expensive, so I think I would have to get some financial supports. I have a question about that for Columbia MFA students and grads.
What kind of fellowships actually have you received from Columbia?
Above all, I would like to hear information on this regarding fellowships they could offer to their students (not from other organizations but specifically from Columbia). Would it be a possible story that they would fund students, and in that case, how much would they? I would be pretty grateful if you indicate the figure and requirements for receiving it.

I hope, if possible, you tell me tips based on your concrete experiences.
