New M.F.A. Program Celebrated at Frequency North

Thursday, September 20 marks Frequency North’s first event of the Fall 2012 semester.

It will also celebrate the new M.F.A program in Creative Writing offered at The College of Saint Rose, Frequency North will host a program with its core faculty.

The reading will take place at 7:30 pm in the Standish Rooms on the second floor of the Events and Athletic Center here on campus. The readers will be Kenneth Krauss, Daniel Nester, Hollis Seamon, Rone Shavers, and Barbara Ungar.  Admission is free and open to the public.

As students, we have to present our work during every class we take. This is an opportunity to see your professors read their work. They make their students do this all the time. Now it’s their turn to feel the pressure.

The M.F.A. program consists of 48 credit hours and will offer students the opportunity to work with different forms of literature, improve their own knowledge of writing, and through the required Practicum offer experience in professional settings to start their transition into their potential careers. Students can study part- or full-time, and take workshops in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

The remaining Frequency North scheduled events follow after the jump. For more information, visit the website at www.FrequencyNorth.com or follow on Twitter @frequencynorth.
