An inside look at the state of colorado

Thank you to past contributor J.

  • For the Screenwriting track we workshopped during the third summer as well as had meetings with the professors about our screenwriting goals for the future;
  • Much of the alpine snow melts by mid-August with the exception of a few snowcapped peaks and a few small glaciers.

Dawson for providing me with these questions! Each of the summer intensives are two weeks long and involves classes Monday to Friday with the weekend off.

First year and beyond

I received a dual MFA in Screenwriting and Genre Fiction, and while the two tracks were similar during the summer sessions, they had slight variations. The first summer session was a chance to meet the professors and other students, to learn the system for online classes, and to get a quick refresh of some writing basics the professors expected us to know before diving into workshopping.

  • Grand Junction is located along Interstate 70 , the only major highway in Western Colorado;
  • Why did you choose low-res vs;
  • We look forward to seeing you.

The second summer session was the most intense one in my experience as both programs were completely focused on workshopping new writing. In the Genre Fiction program we researched markets, wrote query letters to agents and managers, and began to brainstorm our next novel ideas.

For the Screenwriting track we workshopped during the third summer as well as had meetings with the professors about our screenwriting goals for the future. You can choose which sessions to go to, and there is ample opportunity to socialize with the visiting agents, publishers, authors, screenwriters, etc.

How do you stay in contact with your mentor and your classmates during the semester? Each professor and class has a different setup, but usually there is some form of weekly live call with your professor and the other students where you can discuss your work or have writing discussions.

Some professors prefer video chat, while others just used a voice call system, but there was always some form of live element to the classes I was in. As far as keeping in touch with the other students, the program starts with the summer session so we got to all meet in person and get to know each other that way first. Every year by the end I found we all naturally had exchanged phone numbers, emails, social media links and such with each other so we could keep in touch.

During the summer you also get to meet the people in the other years of the program, and it really does become a big community where everyone keeps in touch and makes friends.

I actually ended up making such good friends with someone in a different year of the MFA Screenwriting Program that we decided to be roommates when we both moved to Los Angeles last year. The other way many of the cohorts keep in touch throughout the semester is to create private Facebook groups or social media groups where they can discuss classes and writing.

He moved to New Mexico in 1984 where he held numerous positions in sales and management with the wholesaler.
  4. The famous Pikes Peak is located just west of Colorado Springs. We have another fun, interesting Holiday program to make it even better.
  5. Within the interior of the Rocky Mountains are several large parks which are high broad basins. The Colorado River flows through Glenwood Canyon , and then through an arid valley made up of desert from Rifle to Parachute , through the desert canyon of De Beque Canyon , and into the arid desert of Grand Valley , where the city of Grand Junction is located.

I know both my Genre Fiction cohort and my Screenwriting cohort did this, as well as several of the cohorts in years before and after me. Why did you choose low-res vs.

There are a few reasons I chose a low-residency program over a full-residency program. I was also helping take care of my grandmother and her husband on and off at the time, and it was easier for me to stay where I was than to move and have to make other arrangements.

A lot of the programs I found were focused on literary fiction or writers who were considering becoming professors at some point. I wanted to go into a program that offered some education about the business of writing and the publishing industry.

  • Each of the summer intensives are two weeks long and involves classes Monday to Friday with the weekend off;
  • Registered 50 registrants Registration is closed Holidays at the Brown Palace are always special;
  • The Colorado Mineral Belt , stretching from the San Juan Mountains in the southwest to Boulder and Central City on the front range, contains most of the historic gold- and silver-mining districts of Colorado;
  • Basically, the low-residency program had everything I was looking for as far as who the professors were and what they were teaching, and it allowed me to keep my job and responsibilities in Michigan while getting a vacation in the Rocky Mountains every summer where I got to do nothing but write and talk writing, and that was too good for me to pass up;
  • They were well-known for their eco-brewing techniques, using organic ingredients and effective management of water and waste byproducts.

I was also very interested in Screenwriting at the time, though I knew little about the actual act of doing it. Of course, once I took that course I ended up doing a dual degree so I could study Screenwriting completely because I fell in love with it, but it was the Genre Fiction Program that initially drew me in.

The biggest selling point for me was that professors in each of the concentrations are all professionals working in their industries.

What do you do between school terms? During the school year I worked part-time as a freelance writer, and between terms I would try to work full time when I could.

I would also use the time between semesters to work on some of my personal writing projects or to get a head start on the upcoming semester. We were always given information about what our upcoming projects would be for the future screenwriting classes so we could create our loglines and project pitches before the first class started, and I spent whatever time I could between semesters preparing those materials because it made the semesters easier.
