Internship/Practicum and Mentors

For those of you who will be in the internship/practicum (third) semester in the spring: you may request a mentor as you usually would do for any other course. You will also need to arrange for an on-site mentor, who will vouch for your participation in the internship/practicum and will write an evaluation of your performance at the end of the semester. Your MFA mentor will work with you over the semester to reflect on the internship experience and to delve into wider issues that surround the particular internship (current publishing practices if you were working for a publisher, or issues in reading education if you were teaching reading to 2nd graders, for example). Prior to assignment of your MFA mentor I will advise you on internship issues, so let me know if you have any questions.
