I’m concluding my series on graduate writing programs with the one piece of advice I would give anyone pursuing a master’s degree: you get out of it what you put into it.
So, go to class, apply the tools and techniques you learn, and carefully consider any feedback you receive. Go to all the events sponsored by your program and make friends. Participate in extracurricular activities such as your department’s literary journal or travel-abroad program. Apply the knowledge you gain and advice you’re given to your writing career.
To all the other current and former grad students out there: what advice would you give to those embarking on their master’s degrees?

Are you a poor speller? It could be that you’re too smart.
