Focus your writing technique and storytelling skills under the close mentorship of published professionals.
The MFA Creative Writing program's approach to fiction writing involves focusing on your skills with the kind of individual attention not found in the traditional graduate program setting. Aspiring fiction writers who enter the Master's program are coached in the practice of how to construct and analyze, draft and revise narrative fiction. Working closely with published writers who are also engaged and experienced teachers, MFA candidates develop & practice fiction writing skills within a passionate community of students.
Past visiting fiction writers include Lolita Hernandez, ZZ Packer, Steve Almond, Roland Merullo, Julia Glass, and Justin Torres, among others.
