Beginning next fall, creative writers will be able to workshop their way to graduate degrees at Georgia College & State University, the liberal arts college in Milledgeville, Georgia. The new MFA in creative writing degree program-only the second of its kind in the state after Georgia State in Atlanta-was recently approved by the University System of Georgia's Board of Regents.
Martin Lammon is the director of the new MFA program, as well as president of the Associated Writing Programs and editor of GC&SU's Arts & Letters Journal of Contemporary Culture. The faculty will include Lammon in poetry, Kellie Wells in fiction, and David Muschell in script writing, a genre that includes writing for the stage and screen. Two more faculty members in poetry and fiction will be added to the faculty.
Lammon says the program will encourage cross-genre studies.
The deadline for admissions and financial aid is March 6. For more information visit the college's Web site at www.faculty.de.gcsu.edu/~mlammon/mfa.htm.
