MFA/MA Graduate Program Applications

Having served on the admissions committee for the MA and MFA programs at San Francisco State, I have a good idea of what makes an application and fiction sample stand out from the rest. Graduate programs have become so competitive, that working with a private coach might give you a competitive edge. I've completed an MFA program, been accepted to others, and have read hundreds of graduate school applications.


  • Help you decide where to apply.

  • Share my Experience as an MFA/MA student and teacher.

  • Read a body of your work.

  • Suggest a particular short story or an excerpt to use for your writing sample (based on where you're applying and their requirements).

  • Once a sample is selected, I can work with you as described above.


  • Guarantee that you'll get published, find an agent, get a book deal, or that you'll get into a MA or MFA program (though many of my clients have).

  • Give you an extra “in” at SF State (I have never and will never evaluate a manuscript for admissions that I've worked with professionally).

RATES: Hourly. Discounts available for packages. Please contact me for details.
