If you’re looking at writing schools, you won’t want to miss the September/October issue of PW. The magazine’s theme this month is MFA Nation and they rank the schools in this issue. This year, they also discuss not enrolling in an MFA and note writers who have been successful without the degree, etc. I did meet some writers from some of the low residency programs at the Sewanee Writers Conference this year and was very impressed so you might want to check out those too. The organization’s (magazine’s) website is pw.org.
