MFA 2012 graduating class

The MFA program gave me the freedom to play in a multitude of disciplines: screenwriting, book building, nonfiction, poetry, graphic novels, and, of course, fiction. I consider this a tremendous gift. —Carmen Rodrigues,
MFA fiction '10, author of Not Anything and 34 Pieces of You.

The MFA in Creative Writing

Our MFA program—an intensive, three-year studio-academic experience in the writing of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfictionjoins students who share a common passion and faculty members who provide critical support of their work. The faculty of the Department of Creative Writing view MFA students as colleagues-in-the-making. To help initiate them into the profession, we offer a series of panels and workshops designed to address practical issues that lie outside the scope of the writing workshop.

Our faculty members consider it a privilege to teach in such a community, and our invitation to successful candidates to join our MFA community is an equal privilege and should be regarded as such. We do all that we can to mentor our MFA students to successful lives as writers; in return we ask that they contribute something of value to our writing community.
