Post #1 of 13
My family moved to a new town every year when I was a kid, so I have some experience being the new girl. No, I wasn't an army brat. My mother was just a little strange.
I've been lurking here for about a day and I thought I might as well make my obsession public. I have one year left in my English BA and I'm starting the process of applying to MFA programs for Fall 2012. It is a terrifying ordeal, but the posts in this community have already helped immensely. Not only am I now convinced that the brand of paperclips I use will destroy whatever meager chances I had of succeeding in life, but I'm also pretty sure that nobody but my parents will ever love me. Thanks, P&W forum!
Seriously, though, I'm glad to have found this little community. I'm a writer of creative non-fiction and poetry with the occasional foray into fiction (and a few screenplay ideas like to swim around inside my head), and I've got my eye on some low-residency programs in New England.
I'm looking forward to learning from you all! Hopefully, I will be able to return in kind.
