Our Sweet Sixteen: Help Us Determine the Best Writin’ School in the Land

categories: Cocktail Hour


Once again it is time to scientifically determine the best writing school in the country.  This year’s seeding is based on last year’s results.  Can Vermont defend its title?  Stay tuned.

We ask that you leave your vote on the comments page of this post.  Only one vote per person per school this round please.  But if you like you can vote for two schools, yours and another.  This next round of voting will determine the final 2!  Because how long can we really keep this up?
