Tom Cantwell, M.F.A.


It’s official! Well, this isn’t the official diploma, but I finished my MFA program at the Rainier Writing Workshop at Pacific Lutheran University. What an amazing three years. I’ve learned so much and made so many great friends. At our graduation lunch, Gary Ferguson spoke about a project he did on nature-oriented creation myths from around the world, and how after reading about a hundred of them, he noticed three common elements: beauty, community, and mystery. He suggested that these are things we should focus on in our lives and in our writing. Sounds about right to me.
