This year I finally got my shit together and applied to six Creative Writing MFA programs. I was accepted to three of the six, and two of them offered me merit scholarships!
Honestly? I was totally shocked! I thought maybe ONE program would accept me, if I was lucky. I never imagined I’d actually have to make a choice.
It was tough, probably one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever made in my life. But after a lot of thought, I decided to attend the Vermont College of Fine Arts. It’s a low-residency program, and I start in June :-) 19 months ago
