Welcome to the WCSU MFA Alumni Association web space. We had a formation meeting at the winter residency and we have some very talented and dedicated people helping to shape the alumni experience.
Our mission is to represent and promote alumni membership by creating and fostering relationships between alumni members and the current program. Our vision is to advance the goals and the mission of the program, provide alumni an opportunity to work on alumni initiatives, create social and learning opportunities for the membership, and generate scholarship and other funding streams to continue the success of the program.
As we speak, we are working on a membership structure, communication avenues (this blog being one of them), book awards that will sponsor scholarships for incoming students, and alumni events during the summer residency. Even if you are not working on a committee, we would love to hear about your ideas and your vision for the alumni association.
We are moving right along, so keep up with us by following us through email updates. Eventually, we will have a presences on Facebook and other social media sites.
If you would like to connect with us, click here and fill out a form. We will add you into our list and keep you posted. You can also add some information about what you have been doing. We would love to hear about life changes, jobs, writing projects, publishing deals, and other things going on in your life. Join us in bringing great writers together.
Please feel free to share our blog with other alumni who may not know about us. Everyone who graduated from the program is welcomed to be a part of this group.
Be well – Ron Samul
