MFA and PhD students desiring to serve in July, 2009, as teaching assistants in the Prague Summer Program should send Richard Katrovas the following information:
In the subject slot of an e-mail addressed to Professor Katrovas (firstname.lastname@example.org) write your full name followed by MFA or PhD, depending upon which degree you're seeking. Then, in the body of the e-mail, write three or four sentences explaining why you want to serve the PSP.
TAs do not pay for the program, but do pay for housing and transportation. Many of our TAs have received financial assistance with their airfares. One may earn up to seven hours of credit attending the Program.
TAs serve an essential role in the Prague Summer Program. Margaret von Steinen, the PSP coordinator, and I will explain TAs' duties at an orientation meeting later this month or early in October.
There will be three fiction TAs, two poetry, one creative nonfiction, one playwriting/screenwriting, and one multi-genre. One, possibly two non-creative-writing TAships will also be available.
