MFA Application Help

by thiszine

Looking for a creative writing consultant to help boost your MFA application? The Suburban Ecstasies, a personal and MFA blog, recommends Nancy Rawlinson. The host of The Suburban Ecstasies, poet and attorney Seth Abramson, also co-manages his own creative writing consulting firm, Abramson-Leslie Consulting.


Whereas a consultant for law or business school applications wouldn’t surprise me, this does. I don’t know how effective their) services are or whether it’s actually needed but I think the very existence of consultants for the MFA application shows how much the academic field of MFAs has grown and how much of a business it has become. If you’ve used a consultant service to support your application, I’d love to hear your thoughts on whether it was useful or not.
