1 thought on “Review: DIY MFA: Write with Focus, Read with Purpose, Build Your Community”
I just finished the DIY MFA book (now getting ready to write my review of it), and I agree with everything you said here. It’s a great representation of the concepts Gabriela emphasizes at the site, and every writer (whether they’re a beginner or more experienced) can benefit from her wisdom. And I love how it carries on her writing voice from the blog, too. It’s so her. 😀
