Brian Volck graduated from the Seattle Pacific MFA program in 2007 with a concentration in Creative Nonfiction. He is a pediatrician at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and co-author of Reclaiming the Body: Christians and the Faithful Use of Modern Medicine. He has written for both medical and literary journals, and he is currently researching a book on the intersection of history, culture, and health among the Navajo people.
Brian had this to say about his experience in Seattle Pacific University’s MFA program:
“I applied to the SPU MFA program in order to find someone to whom my writing was accountable. I found that. What’s more, I found encouragement, inspiration, and friendship—palpable confirmation that I wasn’t alone working in this fraught and fertile intersection of art and faith. The SPU MFA provides the best of company.”
