Do you know where you want to go? Or have any idea?? If so, I can try to give you a few in your area (if I m familar with it). But, overall, I d say to try Emerson in Boston or Stoney Brook in the South Hamptons (Frank McCourt & Joyce Carol Oates teach there!!!!) And, don t ever let someone tell you that you wont find jobs with a writing major! You def. will!! Also, if you have good work submit it to literary magazines and try to get published. Colleges, grad schools and employers like this. http://www.newpages.com has a list of lit mags!
