The program leading to the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree in creative writing is a studio/academic course of study, designed to accommodate imaginative and intellectual diversity. Students enroll in writing workshops, forms courses, and literature classes, gaining exposure to a broad range of writing models and experimenting with a variety of strategies and forms. Guided development of each writer's talents culminates in a complete, carefully conceived thesis, typically a book-length manuscript. Students in the program in creative writing give a presentation of a significant portion of their own written work produced while in residence. In this public reading/performance, the student exhibits his or her work before an audience of peers, faculty, and the general public. Our MFA student reading series tends to be a lively, standing-room-only event. The introductions themselves are always an unexpected verbal, visual or theatrical event!
