          Oh, that is cheeky—but excellent.

          I hope you're wrong about #6.

              Where are you applying? I would say the West Coast is more apt to go for cheeky, but even then, yeah, cheeky tends to clash with ivory tower. They can be some self-serious folks, fer sure.

              And please share those wing recipes!

                      Hey eraserheadgirl. I saw something from one of my poet friends and it made me think of you. It was about a poetry retreat and how a former attendee felt that it provided the supportive atmosphere she didn't receive at her MFA.

                      If you're interested, I'd be happy to let you know my thoughts on the pros and cons of the MFA. I think there are other valid (and cheaper!) ways of furthering the craft and finding community. It can seem overwhelming and there are many places that would be all too happy to take your money from you. But having been where many writers are trying to get, I can honestly say that I'm mixed about the whole thing, although grateful for the experience.
