Calaway Testimonial "The collaborative and supportive environment of the program, especially evident during the residencies, took me by surprise — an overwhelming generosity of spirit exists between faculty and students. Each student, equally in all genres, is truly encouraged to grow. —Laura Calaway

Laskey Testimonial Joshua Laskey "Translation is reading made visible—and reading is an active attempt to empathize: with characters, with authors, even with oneself. Translation, therefore, is the exposure to scrutiny of our capacity—even our need—to empathize; that is, to connect beyond the limitations of self and the restrictions of ego. And the low-residency MFA program at FDU is a place to connect, across time and space, with other reader-writers. —Joshua Laskey
MFA student in Translation
Slide So much of what I love about my daily life has been made possible by my Poetry and Literary Translation studies with FDU. From teaching college composition and literature to editing anthologies and other publications, from connecting with like-minded literary artists to having a better understanding of the world around me, my current life—which feels like my life—was sparked by my time with the program. —Heather Lang
MFA alum, Poetry and Literary Translation
Slide It was here — through the direction of our mentors, the keen eye of our peers, and the wisdom of these friendships — that I came to recognize the story I wanted to tell was the one I was already living. —Mariella Diaz
