GCRWT 7500 Creative Writing IV

During the fourth residency's thesis study plan conferences, the MFA Candidate and the Thesis Advisor discuss what proportions of new work (GCRWT 7500 Creative Writing IV) and revision (GCRWT 7502 Creative Thesis) are likely to make the most sense for the MFA Candidate's thesis-in-progress, New creative writing is now firmly focused on the creative thesis, and the border between revision and new writing" becomes appropriately blurred. Thesis students attend a second more detailed thesis-preparation meeting and the Fourth-Semester Cohort Seminars focus in part on students as working and publishing writers in the world.
