Thinking of Going Back to School?

Though, if you’re thinking about getting your MFA, then I highly recommend the low-residency program at Converse College. Application deadline is February 15th.

I write speculative fiction inspired by mythos from around the world, complex family dynamics, and my own experiences living with mental illness. After earning my BA in Linguistics from Brigham Young University in 2008, I received my MFA in Creative Writing from Converse College in 2012. I live in Denver, where my husband and I spend countless hours chasing our three young sons (and sometimes catching them!). I collect tarot decks, dye my hair mermaid colors, and procrastinate by decorating my home. My debut novel, Feathers Sharp as Knives, releases on May 2, 2023.

  1. I’m sort of stuck in the crossroads of wanting and not wanting an MFA. I took a semester at Hamline University’s Writing for Children and Young Adults–which was low residency–and I learned so much, but it was so expensive that I ended up leaving the program. Why do MFAs have to cost so much???? I’m actually considering a regular MFA program, but really only because I would be able to apply for more aid and possibly win a TA-ship.

    Hope this doesn’t sound too nosy, but were you able to get any aid apart from loans?
