Newest MFA launches at oldest university in Canada

Canada's newest MFA program kicked off with a reception
Sunday evening at King's College University in Halifax. The program is the first in the country to focus exclusively on Creative Nonfiction. King's College itself dates back to 1789, a year of revolution if ever there was one. Founders Don Sedgwick and Stephen Kimber, best known as agent and author, respectively, have spent five years developing the program. Our hero is one of four mentors helping to launch the low-residency extravaganza. Participants will spend two weeks in Halifax,
roughing out book projects. Then, in consultation with a series of mentors -- whose numbers will be growing -- they will develop them into publishable books. Along the way, they'll check in with book publishers in Toronto and New York. That's the plan. Doesn't it make you want to party?
