I'm thinking a lot more these days about persuing an MFA in creative writing. I don't know, I guess I just think maybe I'd have a slightly better chance at getting my poetry published if those three letters could appear in my queries. I resent that a little bit, but on the upside, even if I don't get published right away, I could start applying for teaching positions, either as a high school english teacher or better yet--a small state college or university.
Just some thoughts. Feeling my way around my academia withdrawals. Not being in school--moreover not knowing what the nature of my continued education will look like or when it will rev up again-- sort of feels like unemployment, to me. Just a little bit. Maybe it's because I view an advanced education as currency. And in fact, it is currency.
