I got my Vermont College Workshop Packet this weekend. It comes in at just over 200 pages, and it contains pieces by 11 authors (including myself) that I’m supposed to read and be ready to critique by the time the residency rolls around next month.
No so bad, right? Except that I have an article that’s due by the end of the month (I’ll post more about that after I finish the damn thing), we have 2 killer projects at work with really short schedules, and I have to go out of town at next weekend (and then maybe the weekend after that).
So while I’m really excited about reading the packet, all I can think is: What the hell have I gotten myself into?
Hey, Varian, I didn’t realize you were doing the Vermont College MFA program. Congrats! I’v heard good things about it, including that yes, they expect you to actually write stuff. You’ll be fine. I find that the more I have to do, the more I get done. Good luck
