Why am I not able to start posts in the MFA section? Can't Post

Is there a rule that I'm unaware of? I was able to start one (on Johns Hopkins) in the past, but I can't post any now. Help. Thanks.

hamira, I'm not sure I understand your question. If you want start a new thread you're not able to because that function has been disabled. There are many, many existing threads to post just about any question or comment you have. If you can't find one that's applicable, let me know what you want to post and I can probably suggest a good location.

If you're having trouble posting to the Johns Hopkins thread, that's a different problem. I'm not sure I can help you there but if you let me know what's happening when you try to post, I'm sure either myself or Jason can assist.

Thanks for responding. I wanted to start a thread on schools with later than usual deadlines for those who were either looking for more last minute MFA programs to apply to or who had gotten started late in the game.

hamira,

That's actually a good subject for a separate topic. I'll start it.

Thanks motet. The current thread is somewhat broader than what I had in mind. Could you possibly limit the topic to just schools that have later than usual deadlines(and reflect that in the title)? I'm just concerned that it will turn into a thread about deadline anxiety and there seem to be many threads that serve that purpose. Thank you.

No, the topics in the MFA Forum are deliberately broad-based albeit within some restrictive parameters. This allows for a wide range of discussion but not so global as to make finding previous information too labor intensive.

There very well may be some deadline anxiety but Gossamer Threads allows for multiple discussions to occur simultaneously. There's nothing to prevent yours from happening along with some others and nothing to prevent you from restating your question, comments or concerns if you're not getting the response you'd hoped for.
