Pacific University MFA

I received a letter last night from Shelley Washburn, director of the MFA in Writing Program at Pacific University, accepting me into the program starting in January. Over the next two years, in addition to twenty-five hours per week of study independently and via correspondence, I will also attend one ten-day intensive in Oregon each semester and one at the end of the degree (five total). I’m really looking forward to studying with some poets whose work and approach I resonate with, and committing to my writing in this greater way.
