The Roosevelt MFA program provides students with multiple opportunities for collaboration both inside and outside the University to better prepare you for the professional communities you’ll encounter when you finish the degree. Through our Writer-in-Residence and visiting writer series, we bring six writers a year to campus to discuss and read from their works, workshop student manuscripts, and mentor students in the writing life itself. Recent and current visiting writers include: Eula Biss, John Dufresne, Ben Fountain, Albert Goldbarth, Kathleen Rooney, Heather Sellers, Christine Sneed, and Patrick Somerville. We also offer students teaching internships and a credential for the teaching of writing; publishing internships with the Oyez Review; and community writing internships with Chicago nonprofit and arts organizations.
Please join me at the casual end of the semester MFA reading at the Book Cellar independent book store in quaint Lincoln Square. It is this Saturday at 7pm.
You are a beautiful blog.
