a journal of creative and critical writing

In the weeks to come, the minnesota review will feature a four-part mini series by Virginia Tech MFA student Kari Putterman. Today’s post is the first of four excerpts from her essay, Living Tissue on the Page. Be sure to check back next week for the next part of the series!

I think that you should go into an MFA program when you’re solid in your identity as a writer and you’re going because you want to learn more and because you want that community of peers and mentors, not because you want to convince yourself you are a writer.
