Student Testimonials

"I was looking for an MFA program that would fit into my busy life, and this is perfect!  I am a full-time English teacher with three children.  Every mentor and advisor on the faculty has proven to be encouraging and understanding of the demands of real life in a writer's world.  I am so honored to be part of the first cohort of students.  The one-week residencies have afforded us the opportunity to form strong bonds of friendship and trust which have made learning and working together a true joy." - Kirstin Genthner, Michigan

"I got more out of these last four semesters than I thought I would, and I had great expectations going in.  I feel like my craft has been given at least a five-year jump.  I had no idea the things I would know about writing by the end." - David Holub, CT

"The notion of going back to school at 50 was daunting, and I had convinced myself that it would be a lonely experience.  But the program assembled a "community of writers," 24 students who would come to know one another intimately, and who would support and critique one another as a unique organism.  The result has been breathtaking in its communal spirit and breadth of specialized interests.  I have not felt alone." - Don Stitt, NYC

"What attracted me to the MFA program was the ability to shape the program to meet my specific writing goals.  Not only am I studying to become a published writer in my genres; I am actually writing and submitting my work for publication under the expert guidance of professional writing mentors.  I'm getting a practical, 'real world' education." - Anne Witkavitch, Connecticut
