If you are interested in literary translation there are, in the United States at this time, only three MFA programs in literary translation. Only two of these are linked to creative writing programs. The Queens College MFA program in literary translation is one of those two. Even if I had not been a New Yorker, I would have given Queens College very serious consideration. I did my homework: I looked up the faculty (first-rate writers and translators in their own right, as well as outstanding academics); most importantly, I got in touch with current students in the program—which I definitely recommend as the best way to evaluate. That is why I encourage any prospective MFA candidate to contact me for feedback on the program.
