We'd like to welcome our incoming class with a gathering of returning students, alumni, faculty and staff. Get to know the newest members of your cohort, hear some of our recent graduates read from their work, ask questions, buy books (partial reading lists will be available for purchase), and begin to familiarize yourself with your new MFA family.
Faculty in each genre will attend and look forward to meeting their newest students and reconnecting with their returning and graduated ones.
