Craft of Creative Writing Explored on “MTSU On the Record”

The next edition of “MTSU On the Record” will explain the university’s noncredit certificate program in creative writing.

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Karen Alea Ford, director of The Writer’s Loft, will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, April 7, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, April 13, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).

The Writer’s Loft is a creative writing program of the MTSU Department of English designed to help budding authors improve their skills by pairing them with mentors who are already successful published authors.

After three semesters of work, students who meet the criteria will earn certificates in creative writing from MTSU.

“It is just the student and the mentor,” said Ford, who also is an adjunct professor of English. “They work (through) either phone calls or the Internet. There is no class to attend. There is no fighting for attention. So you are not the only person invested in your work.”
