Residency is over, summer is over halfway gone, and the new semester is just around the corner. Things are quiet in the MFA office right now, but that’s about to change as we gear up for our next round of applications for the January/Spring 2019 Residency/Semester. If you want to join us in January, our application deadline is October 1, 2018.
In addition to our upcoming application deadline, we have a flash fiction contest running over at our online literary journal, South 85. They have revived the Julia Mood Peterkin Award, and submissions are due by August 15. So hurry and get your flash fiction sent in for a chance to win the $500 prize.
And lest you think our summer residency is already forgotten, fear not. Look out soon for a blog post featuring pictures from our 10-day June writing extravaganza. So many terrific craft lectures and readings, and so much fun seeing all our beloved students (and some alumni as well.) To quote one of my favorite movies, “If I didn’t work here, I’d pay to get in!”
Until then, keep writing.
P.S. South 85 now has an Instagram account. Be sure to check it out and click follow for some great writing, pictures, and updates about the Flash Fiction contest!
