Sometimes it is possible to recognize the moment when you’re a little off balance. For this morning’s walk, how to catch yourself before you fall down.



The Alma MFA in Creative Writing has an emphasis on place and what it means to write from and care for beautiful places. We’re excited that our first international residency will be in January 2024 in one of the most beautiful places in the world–Venice, Italy. If you believe our two-year, low-residency degree is the right path for your creative journey, check out our program at We’e now taking applications for next cohort that will begin with summer residency on the Alma College campus, in Alma, Michigan, in June. Deadline is May 1.

Take care, and I look forward to reading your work!

Be well,
