Oliver de la Paz’s Requiem for the Orchard is a love letter to memory and its ability to both sustain and shatter us beyond the “dust of ourselves,/ cold, decisive, and purely from the earth.” de la Paz renders in beautiful and exacting language the tenderness and ferocity of boyhood, alongside the enduring vulnerability of parenthood.  Out of such intimate recollection a generous wisdom blossoms.

Could you please tell me the entrance requirements for this program? Will GRE be required? Any idea as to cost? Thank you.

Hello Oliver,
It's been a while since we spoke. I wanted to know if a graduate of the M.A. program can take the MFA program?
