really liked it
bookshelves: never-finished
Recommended for: people who want to apply to MFA creative writing programs

okay so i haven't really finished this but i think anyone who is interested in applying to MFA creative writing programs should read this book. it's really really helpful, he basically walks you through the whole process and helps you figure out your priorities in ranking schools, and he lists all the creative writing programs that exist in the US and many in other countries too. this book inspired me to figure out which schools i'm interested in and and make a schedule for applying. when it's time i'll reread his advice for the application, essay and writing sample to get me inspired again.

the weird thing about it though: the top of the book is cut strangely and a lot of the pages are still connected to each other, so i have to tear them apart in order to turn the page. it's weird. i wonder if i have the only copy like that.
