About this Talk

Join Kate for a virtual discussion with freelance editor and writer Andrea Barilla. For writers who pursue a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing, career options may seem limited to the cutthroat world of teaching in higher education. Not so. Cumiskey and Barilla chose other paths post-MFA, paths that have allowed them the freedom to live and write where they choose, rather than chasing jobs in academia.
