I'm attending the Master's program in Creative Writing. It's a low-residency program, so the classes are set up differently from those in a traditional college. I love the mentor-student setup, where published authors serve as our instructors. I feel confident in their knowledge and have received excellent feedback and assistance. I appreciate, too, that the mentors I've encountered are there to guide, but do not come across as knowing the One True Way of Writing.
What I miss about the low-residency setup is the interpersonal interactions with fellow students. I'm also a bit of a school nerd. When we go to the residencies, we can take as many seminars as we wish; generally they last 50 to 120 minutes and are frequently fascinating, either on some issue of writing or social justice, frequently on a combination of the two. However, once these seminars are over, they're over. This is the other thing I miss; I like ongoing classes that last for months, that allow me to explore, along with fellow students, the issues at hand. It's a bit disappointing that we don't get the chance to do that.
The emphasis on social justice issues and creative writing, however, make up for that fairly well.
