Every day we get questions: How does the low-residency program work? Where will I stay? Do I have to be published? Am I too old? Plus LOTS more question besides. Well, on Saturday, September 16, at 11 am, you can have all these questions answered and more during our very first Facebook Live Info Session. If you have already “liked” our FB page, a notification should pop up on your smartphone when we go live. If you haven’t liked our FB page, then what are you waiting for? Go to http://www.facebook.com/ConverseMFA and click on the “Like” button. If for some reason you can’t watch us live (and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t immediately clear your schedule for this 😉 ), no worries because the entire video will remain up on the FB page for later viewing, and you can always private message us your questions on FB, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 864-596-9550.
While we have had information sessions in the past on campus, this time we wanted to broaden our reach, make it so that people who don’t live close enough to drive here for an hour-long session can have the same experience as locals. I am an alumna of the program, a member of the very first graduating class, in fact. That meant that when I was accepted into the MFA program here, I didn’t fully know how things would work and what a residency would look like even as I signed on the dotted line. So I’m very happy to be able to talk about the program and answer all the questions just generally have a good time chatting with you all. I hope to see you there!
