Alumni Mentorship

Connecting students with alumni writers

What’s wonderful about an MFA in Creative Writing is that there are so many paths you can take post-graduation.

The SMC MFA in Creative Writing program offers alumni mentorship for second year students; students will be matched with an alumnus who is a good fit with their interests and goals. The mentorship program is intended to give students ‘real life’ guidance. Alumni maintain a connection with our MFA program, while doing a service for their fellow alumni and emerging writers.

Alumni mentors and student mentees both agree to a 6-month commitment with suggested monthly meetings or check-ins (alums who have moved out of the Bay Area can substitute video or phone calls).

If you’re interested in being a mentor, please fill out our mentor form. You’ll be asked about your interests, career path, and how you think you can serve best.
