I applied to an MFA in Creative Writing program in 2009. Hundreds apply to this program and I made the wait list. It was encouraging but it wasn’t an acceptance.
I was honoured to be put on a list that was one step away from entering but of course I wanted more.
No one dropped out; “more” didn’t happen.
I decided to make something happen: blackcoffeepoet.com, my own MFA program.
The video below is my letter to the MFA program which outlines why I write.
My words are my weapons.
Tune into BlackCoffeePoet.com Monday August 22, 2011 for “She’s On Top Week: Celebrating Erotic Writing!!!!
This is great, Jorge! I really appreciated reading it today, when I was feeling a little demoralized about my own writing. Thanks, brother.
