Creative Writing at The New School

Publisher's Weekly calls out The New School MFA in Writing for Children ...

In the last couple of years, the New School Writing Program’s faculty and alumni published more than 50 books. To celebrate the news, the M.F.A. program launched a new annual tradition—a book party to honor publishing achievements from grads and faculty throughout the program’s 20-year history. Many of those achievements occurred in the realm of children’s literature—the New School has long offered a popular writing for children track, in which M.F.A. candidates can enroll in children’s literature craft classes and workshops. New School alum Caela Carter has a second teen literary novel, My Best Friend, Maybe, forthcoming from Bloomsbury in June, a follow-up to her successful debut, Me, Him, And It. Jess Verdi recently published My Life After Now with Sourcebooks Fire, a highly praised YA novel about a girl who is diagnosed with HIV.

Scroll down, or you can check out the full issue, which praises The New School's MFA program in four separate sections: Writing for Children; Agents and Editors Talk M.F.A. Programs; From Workshop Table to Editor’s Desk—M.F.A.s Train Editors; What’s the Big Deal?
