MFA Writers is the podcast where host Jared McCormack interviews creative writing MFA students about their program, their process, and a piece they’re working on.
Over the last ten years, Katie M. Zeigler filled out an MFA application six times and never submitted. Now in her second year at St. Mary’s College of California, she talks to Jared about pursuing her MFA 25 years after finishing her Masters, her program’s emphasis on the business of writing, and crafting a novel about caregiving, dementia, and the sandwich generation.
Katie M. Zeigler is a second-year Fiction student in the MFA program at St. Mary's College of California. Before the MFA, she got a BA and an MA in English Literature from Stanford University. Her short fiction and nonfiction have been published in Stonecoast Review, Fish Anthology, The Centifictionist, Griffel, Digging, and Stanford Magazine, and she was recently featured on the podcast, In Short. Visit her at katiemzeigler.com and on Twitter @katiemzeigler.
