In this BITCHIN' (our guest’s current favorite word) episode of SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING, poet Garrett Bryant reads some incredible poetry and discusses the benefits of an MFA Creative Writing program. This is a bitchin’ (had to) episode for writers who have or are debating getting their MFA in Creative Writing. From first hand experience, Garrett talks about the payoff coming in the form of excellent one on one guidance, the connections made, and the collaborations that a program can lead to. Garrett Bryant co-founded Poetic Youth, an outreach organization, teaching poetry to underserved youth populations. He is also involved with SDSU’s annual poetry journal, Poetry International as well as the multi-genre publisher, Locked Horn Press.
