Pacific University Included in Catapult's "Don't Write Alone" MFA Roundtable

Catapult magazine log & Scott Korb MFA Director

The magazine and publisher Catapult recently included MFA Director Scott Korb as part of a roundtable conversation offering advice to writers: "So You Want to Apply for an MFA."

About the Pacific MFA program in particular, Korb said this:

"Our faculty is second to none, diverse in all ways, and the writers they attract to our program make us who we are at Pacific. What makes me most excited—day in, day out—is the work we do to welcome writers to the program who have historically been kept out of MFAs. Through active fundraising, we’ve sought and found incredible support for BIPOC scholarships and teaching assistantships; we have created masterclasses each semester, which are intentional spaces for writers of color interested in pursuing the degree; and we center mentorship as the key value and cornerstone of our students’ success."

Korb was joined in the roundtable by Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, Julie Buntin, Lan Samantha Chang, Jonathan Dee, and Matthew Salesses.
