To MFA or Not to MFA?

That is the question. If you're considering, think carefully. Just because it seems like everyone is doing it doesn't mean it has to be done. The MFA will not make you a writer, only writing can make you a writer. So if you are planning on doing it, be sure to pick a place that will support and inspire your writing. And use some of the following resources to guide you (in picking a place or deciding whether or not to go).
