Poets & Writers MFA Rankings: Surprise, Iowa Wins

Poets & Writers has ranked MFA programs in creative writing for 2012. The Iowa Writers’ Workshop gets the top spot, with University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin, Brown and Cornell rounding out the top five. We assume the cover photo on this month’s issue is the one that P&W was advertising a shoot in Central Park for a month or so back. Lots of women!

The “MFA Nation” headline is scary. Our (free!) advice: don’t go into debt.
