Your entrance into one of America's foremost creative writing programs!

Featuring instruction from past and present faculty members of the acclaimed M.F.A. in Writing Program at Vermont College of Fine Arts, including Mark Doty, Douglas Glover, Robin Hemley, Richard Jackson, Sydney Lea, Bret Lott, Sue William Silverman, David Wojahn, and Xu Xi, Words Overflown By Stars gives you unprecedented access to a top literary education.

This comprehensive resource covers a wide variety of topics, including the creative process, titles, beginnings, voice and style, point of view, novel and short story structure, the role of dreams and fantasy in fiction, the often-blurry borderline between fiction and creative nonfiction, the subgenres of creative nonfiction, music and time in poetry, image patterning, "saying the unsayable," multiculturalism, the art of revision, and much more.

Both provocative and practical, the essays in Words Overflown by Stars distill many of the lessons that have made the graduates of Vermont College of Fine Arts so successful.
