Creativity & Compassion: Spalding Writers Celebrate Twenty Years

Appearance Date: 10/29/2022

Commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the nationally recognized Spalding low-residency MFA in Writing program, this anthology collects essays from the MFA faculty blog from 2014 to 2021. These works offer a trove of insights and accumulated wisdom from fifty faculty members, directors, staff, and alumni-each dedicated to the Spalding ethos of creativity and compassion. Here, you’ll find explorations of craft, literary figures, the writing life, the interrelatedness of the arts, publication, production, and more. By turns practical and lyrical, inspiring and consoling, these essays illustrate the extraordinary literary spirit that defines the Spalding family.
