4. I could be wrong, but I think most MFA programs focus on literary writing. I like literary writing occasionally, but it's not my main focus.

Raven's right. There are some exceptions, but I applied several places and could not get in because I provided genre fiction samples.

A lot of what I've heard is that MFA will help you get a teaching job in writing and literature.

As for myself, I've done well enough choosing other sources of writing education. So I guess you should look at it as, do you want to teach writing or do you want to learn how to write better?

Good luck.
