  • On the Faculty 

    "I had a middle-grade novel published prior to entering the Hamline program, but I still felt like there was a lot I didn't know. I was committed to writing and wanted to become a master of the craft, how to go emotionally deeper with stories... with each faculty member, I felt like I gained something new and different and continued to gain confidence."

    -- Loretta Ellsworth, MFAC alum
