Another really good graduate school is University of Mass. (which also has a strong undergrad program).Lee Said:what colleges have the best creative...

    Best Creative Writing Mfa Programs

    Charles Said:What's the best way to look for colleges if I want to be a writer?We Answered:I suggest researching smaller, liberal arts schools. They will give you the most individual attention in your writing and as a student in general because there is a higher teacher to student ratio.

    Best Mfa Creative Writing Programs

    Sally Said:Critical essay - what about this topic for the Pride and Prejudice?We Answered:I think what Elise is saying (and I hope I'm right here) is that for an entrance to an MFA program, your topic is way too simple. I'm going to be very honest here-Jane Austen's book is about differences in social class, so you're not doing any deep thinking at all here. Your essay just kind of points out the obvious. Sorry to be frank, but you did ask. Showing how Austen portrays the different classes isn't a critical essay. In a critical essay you have to...

    Brown University Creative Writing

    Oscar Said:Do I have a shot at dartmouth or brown?We Answered:Are you a member of National Honors Society? That is another thing that schools look at.

    Shirley Said:Possible Computer Science Security or Creative Writing Career?We Answered:if you only minor in computer science at a vocational school, it won't be useful to you when you're looking for a job -- so of the two choices I'd say prefer the major in CS.

    Lorraine Said:What pretty looking college offers majors in art, and creative writing?We Answered:I'm a little biased, but I think my school, Duquesne University in Pittsburgh PA might interest you. :) Their website www.duq.edu has pictures of the campus and they definatly offer art and creative writing. Its located in downtown Pittsburgh, but is still kind of secluded, so it doesnt always seem like your in the middle of the city.

    Careers In Creative Writing

    Vicki Said:What am I supposed to do if I want to pursue a writing career?We Answered:Like artists and actors, the rungs of the career ladder for published authors are extremely narrow at the top, i.e., very few achieve wide success and make millions. As it is said about actors: "There are thousands of actors and actresses in Hollywood, and most of them are waiters and waitresses." But there are plenty of writing jobs that can provide a good living. “Try to enjoy the writing itself. Don't even think about publication. Just focus on making every sentence, every paragraph, every page the...

    Classes Creative Writing

    William Said:Did you find that CREATIVE WRITING classes helped you develop STYLE??We Answered:I almost majored in Creative Writing -- then one day a professor (also my advisor, also the head of the department) came into class before reading anyone's work and told us all point blank that we would NEVER make a living writing.

    Edwin Said:What are some ideal colleges for a writer/creative writing professor?We Answered:Smith College has a great writing program and offers a ton of financial aid.

    Columbia Creative Writing

    Elizabeth Said:I want to major in creative writing in college but i can't decide which college i should go to help?We Answered:Actually I would strongly recommend Hamilton College in upstate NY. Highly regarded for creative writing. If you are not attracted to bearing the winters of upstate NY then my next choice is Holy Cross in the Boston metro area. Emerson would be my third choice.

    Columbia Mfa Creative Writing

    Ella Said:MFA - Iowa or Ivy League?We Answered:The MFA CR is the prime example in all of academia of the old saying, "those who can do, those who can't, teach. " If you want to write, then write. Once you have had four or five novels published and reviewed in the Times, then you will have no problem finding a job teaching writing.

I'd start with joining a local or area writers' club and get advice from the other members on what is good and what is a scam. You can type the words "writing contests"...

    Creative Writing Courses At University

    Enrique Said:How many pieces of writing should be in a writing portfolio?We Answered:A portfolio is just a collection of writing pieces, from 2-200, but for a college course I'd say 4-9 of your best pieces would be good. Too many will bore the instructor. You could even get away with 3 that you are really proud of. For finding non-fiction topics to write about, just live your life and you'll find something that will make you say "that's interesting". Write it down, and in about 2 days you'll have a pretty good list. Pick the most interesting ones and get...

    Creative Writing Courses For Children

    Denise Said:Explanation for illiteracy among a post-apocalyptic society?We Answered:I think that in a post-apocolyptic world we will lose a lot of the values we stand for, including literacy, etiquette, and humanitarianism. People will be too busy trying to survive. It takes energy and focus to learn how to read, and if someone hasn't mastered basic reading skills so it becomes an automatic process, you will find reading going by the wayside. Remember, most people in the US have about a 6th grade reading level anyway, and the focus is now on audio-visual data streams rather than reading simple text. So...

    Geraldine Said:Worried about a student In college what should I do?We Answered:It's ok to be concerned about this, but don't assume all quiet people are killers like you see on the news. I've been labeled the same way for being quiet 3 years ago. Based on what I know, he has no friends, has low self esteem and is probably very socially awkward; a reason why he doesn't talk. Also saying "If you need somebody to talk to" most likely won't be a conversation starter to shy people. Again this is just my views.Rebecca Said:Can anyone help me with my...

    Leroy Said:Do you sometimes feel that Philippine College Education is neglecting the arts?We Answered:There are different types of students, and they come from different social classes. Those from the lower social classes go to school with the primary motivation of making good money as soon as possible. Thus, the nursing courses, and even the caregiver courses. Those from well-to-do families are not pressured, so they take courses as they wish. That is not to say that ARTS does not pay. On the contrary, the pay is handsome, and those who excel will not find a need to even think of migrating for...

    Creative Writing Courses Toronto

    Andy Said:Aspiring writer in need of some guidance?We Answered:Well, for me, bigger and more people around wouldn't exactly spell opportunity. There's more competition, and possibly instructors of the college are less likely to focus on any particular student over another because there would be so many. As to the degree, I would choose one that was broader in a sense that I could narrow down just what it is I want to do as I go along. As far as I know, you can always change your major/minor, and leaving your degree a bit flexible may help you to decide...

    Creative Writing Courses

    Cody Said:Do most writers take creative writing courses at some point in their lives?We Answered:Many great writers never took creative writing classes. Many learned their craft by reading and studying other writers or by asking for and taking suggestions from other writers. Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Steinbeck and Dostoevski are a few. Although Hemingway did start out as a journalist. A degree in writing does not make someone a writer of note any more than a degree in art makes an artist a great artist. If classes do anything, they do provide short cuts to learning the craft.Nellie Said:Does University of Georgia offer both...

    Creative Writing Degree

    Seth Said:What are the best colleges to go to for a Creative Writing degree?We Answered:It's surprisingly hard to find universities with Creative Writing as a major at all. University of Iowa I've heard is really good, but if you have strong credentials or are a really academically oriented or otherwise gifted person, you should really apply to Columbia University (or look into it). They have a great creative writing program and are one of the few schools to even offer it. However, if you're not really the "nerdy" kind, a lot of the small liberal arts colleges have great writing...

We were talking about who we keep in touch with, and when I mentioned someone else from our course, she asked "Which fast food chain is she working for now?"

    Justin Said:I would like a critique for this rough draft I'm writing for my creative fiction writing class.?We Answered:Far too wordy. The first sentence is redundant. I advise changing it to "Atop this hill is where I lost everything precious to me." (Everything and anything doesn't make sense. Would you ever say "I lost anything precious to me" ? That's just odd.) "It’s atop this hill where the only reason I kept moving forward stopped pushing me and ceased moving altogether. " This is also redundant and awkwardly worded. I'd say you could actually use "lost" again and it would help emphasize the loss....

It's the only way you'll ever know what you like. That said, there's a program at most colleges and community colleges called "continuing education", "personal enrichment", or "lifelong learning" that offers many of those classes and does so much cheaper than your college tuition.

Shakespeare is famous for his ability to create complex, multilayer characters that cannot be adequately described in terms of simple black and white. Even the worst villains have traits that make it possible to understand them, if not sympathize with them or forgive them. “Merchant of Venice”, however, introduces the image that is ambiguous and is understood so differently that Shakespeare...

    Mildred Said:If you major in illustration (with a creative writing double major) can you land a full-time job?We Answered:It's true that there aren't many permanently employed comic artists, and the vast majority of the work goes to freelancers - this is because projects requiring different styles come and go very often.

Also, we get exercises, like speed writing - our teacher tells us a word ("ink", "olives", "snow"), and we have exactly thirty seconds to write something about that, without thinking about quality, syntax or creativity.

Because to be honest, creative writing is not the kind of degree that is offered by most 'good' universities here in the UK.

As for majors of value to writers: For any field that you'll write non-fiction, a major in that field is a huge advantage. For example; journalists that write on business and economic news do much better for themselves with a degree on econ or business admin....

However, MIT is strenuous to get into, and just about any other really top-notch college such as Princeton, Harvard, Yale, etc. The amount of stuff that MIT looks at is unbelievable. Even if you got a 2400 on SAT and 36 on ACT, that doesn't mean you'll get into MIT. MIT especially looks for really great achievements that you've done.

You will still have to go through the application process and everything since they're two different programs; the transfer from one to the other won't be automatic. (Of course, this goes without saying if you switch schools, but I'm reading this as staying at the U of Iowa for both.) Likewise, it's also possible at a...

This is in fact the minimum requirement to teach in college (no matter how many people tell you that all college instructors have a PhD) and as the minimum you'll be assigned mostly lower level courses. It's usually adjunct (part-time) and not the best classes. Community Colleges are easier to get the job in with a...

    Lydia Said:What Universities offer a Masters Degree in English (and or) Creative Writing (and or) Publishing?We Answered:You have a BA already, I assume? Anyway, if you want a master's degree in creative writing, you typically need to look for MFA programs. UVA has one, as do lots of other schools in Pennsylvania and Virginia (and Maryland and DC); I don't know what type of writing you do, or I'd try to give more specific guidance. Degrees in publishing are much harder to find - and frankly, not necessarily your best route into a career that doesn't pay very well...

    Frank Said:Journalism or Creative Writing Master Course - Which one has better future career?We Answered:Have you considered the best of both worlds - ie. a Masters in creative/narrative non-fiction? These courses often combine the narrative arc of novel writing with the 'real world' issues of journalism. It's true that novel writing is not always lucrative (unless you're either very good or very lucky). I work in a university in London that runs MA courses in both creative writing and journalism. I think it's fair to say that most creative writing graduates tend to subsidize their income with other jobs. Best of...

They won't list them all, but they'll provide you with a core group of reputable programs you can search by state. You can do some sifting by genre preference (if you search the web for "MFA poetry" you'll get different results than you might for "MFA playwriting") as well.

You can investigate some other programs at http://www.awpwriter.org/.

    Vernon Said:Has anyone attended the MFA creating writing program at the Iowa Writers' Workshop?We Answered:Although I haven't the same input that you've had, I've always regarded this as primarily a "literary novelist" elitist hangout, insiders only and intellectually incestuous. The sequence goes: Professor A. attends the Workshop...returns to his Ivy Venue and teaches Grad Student B., who faithfully replicates stylistics of Prof. A., and thus segues into a New PhD...Newbie gets gig in another Ivy Venue and creates his own faithful coterie of clones...they busily critique each others' work, create more grad students in their image, write more...

All of them use a model where the student works primarily with a mentor vs being in classes with other students. Personally, I think these programs work best for people who are older and well-read. If you're young, you're really cheating yourself by skipping a residential program, where you can mingle with writers, teachers, and your peers, and make life-long contacts...

You are worrying about something that could potentially take 3 days of heavy researching and investigation for something that can be summarised in a sentence. If you must find out this information - go to the website of a local prison. That should have the procedures for visiting relatives and pick-up at the end of a prisoner's sentence.Erin Said:I...

If you can't major in education, then I would pick something general like psychology (which is what I had to do). None of the majors there are going to help with elementary education. And speaking from experience you may have those grade levels in mind, but once you get started it may change and/or whenever you get out of college you may not find an opening at that level.

    Novel Writing Advice

    Travis Said:I'm thinking of writing a novel, any advice?We Answered:I'll have to disagree a bit with the above poster. If you think you can write like Lawrence Block, then don't. Because then you'd just be a knock-off. An imitator. You never want to imitate your idols, no matter who they are. You want to develop your own unique voice and style. As far as "thinking" about writing a novel, quit thinking. Start writing. Write notes, write snippets of dialogue, plot it out. Write. Even if it's crap the first time.

    Nyu Creative Writing

    Kurt Said:Would you recommend NYU for journalism or creative writing?We Answered:Be sure to find a journalism program that's strong in new media/multimedia journalism. Many journalism students are woefully prepared for the real world because their programs do not teach them the latest skills they need. According to an article by NYU journalism student Alana Taylor on PBS's MediaShift blog, NYU is not up to speed on the latest media technologies. Granted, this is just one student talking about one professor. But, you should probably do some further investigating. Higher education is a big investment of time, money and energy, so...

If you work at a university in any department-- even a writing center-- you can have big tuition breaks. There are also student...

They are usually much more expensive and have trouble with their financial aid offices and transfer of credits should you choose to go elsewhere. However, online programs that...

People who study it as a foreign language study it differently than we did in elementary school. It's just interesting. :) Edit: Since all of the sentences seem to be from a biography, I feel like all of them are in the past simple form. I'm sure a couple of them could be written with the present simple form if you imagined they weren't from a biography (like #2, #3,...

    University Of Michigan Creative Writing

    Susan Said:What are my chances of getting into the University of Michigan?We Answered:Do you have a 3.54 or a 3.8? A 3.54 isn't good enough, normally, and you need to bring it up-- but you have plenty of time. The 3.8 would be good. The deal with Michigan is that they have more qualified applicants than they have room for, so even if you meet the qualifications you may still not get in. You need to be overqualified to secure your spot. Do some more community service, and I would suggest less stress of sports...

    Uva Creative Writing

    Alma Said:Should I go to UVA or Va Tech?We Answered:UVa is certainly more Liberal Arts oriented than Va Tech.

NYU, Macaulay Honors, UW Mad?We Answered:The bad news is that the magazine industry is dying--the victim of the internet. NYU is ridiculously expensive and it is not worth going into debt to go there. If you want to be in NYC, go to Hunter as it is a general college whereas Baruch is very business-oriented. As you say, Brooklyn's lower standing does not make it a...

    Vanderbilt Creative Writing

    Alan Said:What are my chances?We Answered:I don't know all of these colleges well, but raise your science and math and you shouldn't have any trouble with most of these! You've taken the test once so you know what to expect. The biggest trouble I had was on science. I really had no idea what was going on. I used the 'common sense' method and ended up with a 28 or 30. You have a plethora of activities, which is great. However, the first things that are looked at on a college application is your GPA and ACT/SAT. The ACT/SAT are...

    Write A Book

    Rodney Said:Hoe can I open my mind more to write a book or poem or even a story?We Answered:There are a couple of ways you can beat writer's block. Here are some that work for me: 1. Just write about anything. Don't try to write creatively, or have any goal in mind. Just write down whatever is in your head. You can even start with, "There is nothing in my head. I can't think of anything to write." Force yourself to put words on paper for at least a page, and you may find that somewhere in there you get on...

    Writing A Book

    Alfredo Said:Do you need permission to use a song lyric in a non-copyrighted book?We Answered:There is no exact answer, because it depends on how much of the lyrics you use, why you used them, etc. The legal doctrine that allows you to use other's copyrighted works is called fair use. There is no exact fomula, but you just weigh the following four factors to determin if the use is fair: 1. purpose and character of theuse: a. commercial (bad) or not (good) b. transformative (good) or slavish copying (bad) (note that you can use the same exact thing in a different context and...

    Writing Course Online

    Joseph Said:I am looking for a good, inexpensive online screenwriting course.?We Answered:I have never found one worth it. The best way is to read scripts, understand the formatting and write scripts with new ideas. Or old ideas that have been done a million times but told differently ex. Romeo and Juliet... on a ship, Titanic! There are some books that can be read but be prepared to be told different things from different people. There is not a real way to do it so if your script is different it will be torn apart by that person. and knowing someone...

    Nathan Said:Writing contests... I'm lost and confused..............?We Answered:Possibly, you have received advice about two different kinds of writing contests. Dorchester Publishing (my own publisher) is currently running a Texting contest for the next text novel. I don't believe that publishers require an entry fee. I don't remember paying one when I entered the New Voice In Romance contest (which led to my publishing contract with Dorchester). On the other hand, the Romance Writers of America (joining fee $75) has a national contest for unpublished authors: The Golden Heart. It might cost you $100 to enter. Nevertheless, it is a highly reputable...

    Anita Said:What do I need to get my Masters at Yale?We Answered:I don't know specifically about graduate programs at Yale, but being at a Ivy League institution would mean that they probably have very high standards. 3.5 is good, but don't let it slide down more than that.

I don't know how academically rigorous Michigan State is, so I would try to keep pushing that GPA, because for most grad schools GPA is everything.Elsie Said:What should I be doing to get into Yale?We Answered:A couple of...
