I have captured the much-glimpsed but rarely-photographed mythic beast, that cryptozoological unicorn of the MFA program—FUNDING.
Which means no more loans, I’ll have a stipend, but I have to teach writing (essays/papers, not fiction, sadly) to undergraduates. I am crazy nervous about that, but I’ve heard my program does a good job of preparing you.
Welcome to the Land of Teaching Assistantship. Let’s see you get writing done now, punk.
Anyone have words of wisdom?
