“Each of our fine corps of faculty mentors is a practicing writer in his or her respective genres, and all bring to our program a collective wealth of experience and practice in contemporary writing and publishing. While many already teach at more traditional resident colleges and universities, and several head programs in writing on their campuses, every one of them is committed to the UNO MFA program’s emphasis on personalized one-on-one student-mentor relationships. From the initial pairing each semester of a student with a faculty mentor at residency, the bond of trust and mutual respect for their common goals carries them through the months of study when they are separated by geography but in touch through ongoing personal correspondence. Our faculty delight in taking a personal interest in each student with whom they are paired for a semester of tutorial study. They pour their talents and energies into coaching their students for success in their writing careers.”
