Today I ran across a writing resource with a very interesting title “Portable MFA in Creative Writing.” Before we get to that I want you to imagine that guy in the info commercials and hear him say: “but wait, it’s FREEEEEEEE.”
Thank the cool people at GalleyCat for the resource. Now click on the link and start your download to Kindle or your PC.
“The eBook version of the New York Writers Workshop’s Portable MFA in Creative Writing is currently free on Amazon and on Barnes & Noble. It’s a great value for any writer during these tough economic times.
