Low-residency MFA programs are on the rise. This panel features an alumni perspective on the educational and post MFA low-residency experience. We will examine how well the low-res model fits our needs as well as our programs’ resources for alumni, the development of alumni communities, and the reality of establishing a publishing or academic career. We will also look at the overall value of the experience on a personal, artistic, and professional level. A Q&A session will follow.
