Panel S209. Master of None: Surviving and Thriving without an MFA,
With Rebecca Makkai, Samuel Park, Marie Myung-Ok Lee. We discuss life outside the academy; making professional connections and finding a support network; navigating sticky situations where recommendations are required; teaching without a terminal degree; and the challenges and benefits of writing in isolation. We also share how we learned to better our crafts outside of a workshop, and how we got feedback on our early writing.
