South Pasadena, CA
MFA in Creative Writing '10
"The mentors in the MFA program treat you like a peer, sharing what they’ve learned to make you a better writer. It’s good for adults. You don’t want somebody to come in and say ‘you need to do this or that,’ but rather, ‘here are the tools that I often employ that I think would personally work for you... [We read] people who are going to give us a broader understanding of writing, and also a broader understanding of the human experience."
