Penn State MFA Funding Cut
My MFA is from the University of Minnesota, but I did my undergrad at Penn State-Erie, and so when I saw this article, it saddened me. PSU has been forced to cut funding for its MFA students (not the current ones, but incoming ones). The funding I received was the main reason I was able to attend my MFA program. That funding was crucial, as I know it is for many other writers in these programs. I could never have written my book without that funding.
