Last month I wrote about the impending demise of my graduate Master of Professional Writing Program at USC. While Dean Steve Kay has classified the move strictly as a “business decision,” no one really knows what that means, which is why some MPW students and alumni started a letter-writing campaign to convince him to sit down and talk.
To date, Dean Kay has not responded; so I think it’s pretty cool that the Los Angeles Times picked up the story and referenced my blog post as a source. While I would have preferred links from a stellar book review, a shout-out is a start. I’m just glad MPW is getting some press.
