Find your future @ Sierra Nevada University
My undergraduate professors drove me to be a better student and a better person, but they also gave me the space and the encouragement to find my own way. I gained confidence and validation as an artist and a critical thinker. When I decided to pursue poetry at a more serious level, the stellar faculty and low residency model of SNC's MFA in Creative Writing program made it an easy decision.
