This photo has nothing directly to do with the link I am posting to The Stonecoast Review, but it does reflect my state of mind. I’ve got a big smile on my face because I’ve made it through a demanding month of packets for my Masters Program, three to be exact, as I ramp up for the Stonecoast July residency. Currently I am reading Mary Kean’s Liar’s Club for annotation and listening to Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel for a workshop on Historic Fiction and writing several hours a day.
What is it like in a low residency MFA program? Click on the link below to find out and while you are at it, you can read my little piece of flash fiction. I’d also like to give a little shout out to the editors of Stonecoast Review who have worked so hard to make certain that all blind submissions (unmarked so that the reader is not prejudiced by information about the writers’ past credits, geographic location, or educational background) are read multiple times and pieces are thoughtfully selected and edited. Hard work and all done on a volunteer basis.
