A while ago I was searching the forums for Creative Writing Programs, when I realized just how many threads were basically only about Math and Science programs--so I thought I'd post some info that might help people who were in the same boat as me. (some application dates might be soon approaching or already past, as of now, so do take note of that!!)
For programs that I've attended I go in depth, but otherwise, I'm just listing the info because I don't want to mislead:
I highly recommend this program--the Pros of the program are almost too many too count--great small workshop settings with really really good teachers (poetry, mixed-genre & fiction workshops--and you can only attend one kind, so basically you are on a track), and there are great readings by amazing writers (James Tate read there--no joke!--and don't feel bad if you have no idea who he is--I didn't either until not too long ago) every night of the program, plus the fact that we are worked pretty hard--from about 9 (or was it 8?) in the morning till past 8, sometimes even 9 at night...The only Con I can think of is that the program is pretty short. The program said the might extend this, but I don't think they have yet.
