Converse Low-Res MFA Info Session: Online & In-Person Options

Speaking of the Converse low-res MFA, where I just was for 10 days…this bit of news from our director, poet Rick Mulkey:

MFA Information Session for Prospective Students

The Converse College Low Residency MFA program will offer an information session on Thursday, January 29 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ezell Conference Room 101on the Converse College campus. 

Those individuals living outside of the region who are interested in learning more about our program may participate through Google Chat. 

The session will provide interested writers information on South Carolina's only low residency MFA program in creative writing. The Converse College Low Residency MFA offers students opportunities to focus in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, plus opportunities to pursue internships in publishing and editing through our C. Michael Curtis Publishing Fellowship at Hub City Press. 

In addition, Converse MFA students may participate in editing opportunities with the program's national online literary magazine South 85 Journal, and develop teaching experience with our online and traditional classroom Teaching Assistant positions. 

Information on the application process, the recent outcomes and publishing successes of our graduates, and an opportunity to speak with the MFA program director, Rick Mulkey, and several current MFA students will take place during the session. Contact Rick Mulkey at the following if you have questions about the session or about how to participate in the session online: <> or <>.
