iowa writers workshop turns 75 years old



Good for them!


Of course, when I applied to go there as a student to get my MFA,

they rejected me.

And Warren Wilson also rejected me, when I asked if I could study with them—

Vermont College accepted me (they had lower standards, obviously, if they took
worst-cases like me)

and I got my MFA degree from Vermont.

I wasn't good enough for Iowa or Warren Wilson,

which is another illustration (if more were needed) of their outstanding quality.
