In the midst of the so-called current situation,
our Open House is open. All you need to do is click.
In November every year we hold our MFA Open House in Hunter's 624 seat Kaye Theatre. There you will normally discover just how close Hunter College is to the subway. A minute later you will learn that we offer a free ride to every poetry and fiction student.
In a normal year you will see the 36 students standing on the stage in front you. From them you will expect the gritty truth. For instance, what is a Hunter writing workshop really like? What will you learn? Is Hunter really better than College C or D or E? Are the students full of attitude? Are the walls splashed with writers' blood? Can you get a degree and keep a job? Do the professors like to teach? For that matter, who are the three professors who will actually teach you? Et cetera.
But now we have the so-called "current situation." With the Kaye Theatre closed, how do you get this vital information?
The answer is, you visit the Open House we had on Zoom (and which we thoughtfully recorded). Click here for fiction, here for non-fiction, here for poetry.

After that, who knows? Maybe we'll see you next year, in real life, standing with your classmates on the stage of the Kaye Theatre.
