Re: [motet] The Michener Center for Writers [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi,
I’m in need of sound advice and wanted to hear directly from a former Fellow about his or her experience at the Michener Program at UT.
I currently work full-time and am able to squeeze about 600-700 hours a year (about 15hrs a week) towards writing a novel on the side. As I see that students at the Michener take classes and have assignments with required reading and the like, I wanted to know realistically how much time fellows are able to dedicate to his/her primary thesis or novel while participating in the Michener Program.
I’m trying to assess whether or not the program is right for me – particularly if it would afford more time than I already can dedicate towards finishing my novel(s).
Thank you so much for your time and happy writing!

For any full-residency MFA program, which includes the Michener Center, the primary work of the students is writing. All the reading and coursework is in support of that goal.

Re: [dahosek] The Michener Center for Writers [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, I just have a quick question - is it ok for future writers to use paper checker program like Grammarly or Hemmingway?? Actually I really want to become a good writer but sometimes I'm not sure about the quality of my work and although English isn't my native language, I'm a profficient speaker but I'm not confident whetehr my level of english would allow me to become a writer. Right now I'm apart of one writing program and we have lots of writing tasks, and I do want to succeed in doing them but also I'm afraid of failing or embarrassing myself that's why I though of using such programs. Still, I'm not sure whether this will become bliss or demise.
