MFA in Creative Writing

The Creative Writing MFA brings together nationally recognized authors and a diverse, carefully selected group of students in one of the most culturally rich cities in the country. Students work in small groups with faculty to study fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, or a mix of all three. In addition to their coursework, MFA students help run the River City Writers Series, one of the oldest and most prestigious series of its kind, and run their own reading series, Working Title. They staff The Pinch, an award-winning literary journal distributed nationally twice a year. Students also have opportunities to teach creative writing locally and abroad. Graduates of the program have gone on to publish books, win awards and teach in universities around the country.
