I recently graduated from Columbia’s Creative Writing Program with an MFA in fiction. The full-time, 60+ credit program centers around the workshop where students submit their own work and critique their peer's work. Then there are seminars, lectures and master classes where I've learned about style, dialogue, building a scene, form, how to compile a short story collection, structure, plot, character, and much more. I'm currently working on a short story collection and a novella.
MIAMI AD SCHOOL
Miami Ad School's account planning boot camp taught me the fundamentals of brand strategy. This was three months of planning classes, client assignments, presentations and improv class. I left the school encouraged to blur the lines between departments as listening to everyone's ideas at all steps of the process helps the work. A few of us pieced this (click here for link) together for anyone interested in the program. Following the program I freelanced, I was involved in side projects and took a one way ticket to London to find a job (click here for link). Didn’t get one.
UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS AMHERST
Here I got my undergraduate degree in Marketing from the Isenberg School of Business.
