To Compose in Words: An MFA

Much like the conductor lifts his hands towards an orchestra, the director of the low-residency MFA program at Converse College, lifts his hands towards the writers-in-progress. Rick Mulkey a practicing poet, husband, and father is the man behind the program. His right-hand is Melody Boland, a knowledgeable asset for students, faculty, and staff. She keeps the program personal; which is priceless in a low-residency program.

Who are the Faculty?
They are strong writers, readers, and teachers. Just what an MFA student needs, knowledgeable guidance and mentorship.

Who are the students?
We, because I am one, are writers-in-progress. Some are promising poets, fiction gurus, and some are creators of creative nonfiction.

There is a way to do it better--find it. - Thomas Edison

If you are a writer-in-progress, and want more, more than just words on a page. If you want a life-changing experience--as I can attest to. Look into the low-residency MFA program at Converse College in Spartanburg, SC at and ask for Melody.

Deadline for Applications: Feb 15, 2011
