Free Online Writing Workshop: Crafting an MFA program application

A hands-on workshop about putting together an MFA application with guidance and writing prompts to help participants craft their Letter of Intent or Artist Statement.

Judy Halebsky is the director of Dominican’s low residency MFA in Creative Writing program. She is the author of the poetry collections Tree Line and Sky=Empty, which won the New Issues Prize. Her chapbook Space/Gap/Interval/Distance won the Poets-Under-Forty award from Sixteen Rivers Press. On a MEXT fellowship from the Japanese Ministry of Culture she trained in Butoh dance at the Ohno Studio in Yokohama and studied Noh theatre at Hosei University in Tokyo. Her translations of poetry from Japanese to English include work by Yuka Tsukagoshi and Mizuho Ishida. Most recently, she has written essays on Moth-style storytelling and the poet Chana Bloch.
