Creative Writing

Our nationally recognized Creative Writing Program offers a one-year, intensive MFA in two program areas: Poetry and Fiction. The program prepares writers to teach and to become better critics of their work and others’. The program attempts to make students scholars of literature—that is, aware of those upon whose shoulders they stand.

A distinguished faculty of world-class novelists, poets, and critics lead small seminars, advise independent student writing, and engage in professional mentoring. The goal of the program is to prepare students to become better writers of original prose and poetry and to produce readers, critics, poets, and fiction writers of the highest quality.
