Тема: Creative Writing Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program.

Every year MFA students travel with faculty to a different country as a part of our innovative creative writing field seminars. Recent trips have included Peru, Vietnam, Iceland, Turkey, Ecuador, Brazil, England, Germany, and Costa Rica, as well as continental trips to New Orleans and Canada. Program tuition goes toward these trips, making them affordable for most students. More importantly, the trips are transformative for our students, whose writing becomes sharper and more nuanced when in an unfamiliar environment.

Happy to be traveling to VT to "s MFA residency as a grad assist where I hope I"ll get my writing mojo back.

The problem with Columbia, Sarah Lawrence, CSA + U Dub is that none of these programs are very well-funded and there are other programs that are just as good, if not better than the ones you ve listed and they re much better-funded too. CSA has virtually no funding; UW only gives 2-3 fellowships per genre at most; ditto with Sarah Lawrence. And though Columbia is a great program, it s funding problems are legendary. Some accepted students receive a 3/4 tuition waiver + small stipend, and some students receive a scholarship for $250. In the most expensive city in America, that s sacrilegious. Consider these schools: 1. Cornell University (amazing program, fully funded, many MFA graduates teach at CU afterward) 2. University of Texas-Austin (three years, 25k stipend + tuition scholarship for all accepted students, including summer stipends) 3. University of Michigan (fantastic program, amazing faculty, fully funded + a great college town too--Ann Arbor) 4. Johns Hopkins (great program, caters to experimentalist writing, fully funded) 5. Florida State University (one of the top 10 programs in the nation, fully funded, large department + great faculty, including a Pulitzer-Prize winning author) 6. Brown University (one of the top 10 programs in the nation, fantastic writers, fully funded, amazing faculty + university) 7. Indiana University (3 year program, one of the top 10 programs in the nation, fully funded; IU has a fantastic summer writers conference too) 8. University of Notre Dame (2 years; great, eclectic faculty; inexpensive cost of living; all students receive tuition scholarships; 8 out of 20 students receive stipends; all students can teach composition classes; 2 competitive paid summer internships to work in NYC at a major publishing house or a prominent literary agent; one graduating MFA will win the Sparks Prize for 25k and a year s time to write) 9. Syracuse University (3 years; fantastic faculty (George Saunders); fully-funded, within striking distance of NYC) 10. University of Wisconsin-Madison (rotates between poetry + prose admissions; fully funded; great college town; program has an amazing reputation; graduating MFA prizes) 11. Purdue University (fully funded; great faculty; up and coming program; low cost of living; 3 year program) 12. University of California Irvine (fully funded; great faculty; fantastic reputation (Aimee Bender + Michael Chabon, being two of the better known graduates) 13. University of Alabama (fully funded; great, eclectic faculty; up and coming program; MFA students teach CW + composition; four-year program) Caveat: because almost all of the above-mentioned programs are fully-funded + well known, they tend to get more applications, which means their acceptance rates will be lower. If you re interested in checking out admissions statistics for these programs, check out: http://sethabramson.blogspot.com/2007/01/2007-creative-writing-mfa-rankings.html If you want more options for MFA programs in the US + Canada, look at the following link: http://www.newpages.com/creative-writing-programs/creative-writing-programs.htm Keep in mind that Western Michigan University sends its MFA students to Prague for its Summer in Prague Writing Conferences. One final thing, if you want to get a PhD and you re also interested in studying creative writing, you should consider applying to one of the 30 or so PhD in literature + creative writing programs. Most of these doctoral programs give you dual emphasis on literature AND creative writing. Basically, you ll take a bunch of literature courses, along with workshop classes in your genre + then instead of writing a critical dissertation of 150 pages, you ll write a short critical essay around 50 pages in addition to a book of poems, a novel, or a collection of short stories. Here are some of the best PhD programs in Literature + Creative Writing according to the Atlantic Magazine: 1. University of Southern California 2. University of Houston 3. Florida State University 4. UNLV 5. University of Utah You can add to this the following programs that are also very good: 6. University of Missouri-Columbia 7. University of Southern Mississippi 8. Ohio University 9. University of Wisconsin-Madison (that has an internal major option) Additionally, some of the better known PhD programs in Literature + CW in the UK are: 1. University of Manchester 2. University of Glasgow 3. University of East Anglia 4. University of Middlesex 5. University of Kent 6. University of Sussex Funding for MFA programs in the UK doesn t seem very good for foreigners, but I could be wrong. In any case, I wish you luck with that. I hope this helps you out.

This is why I took an MFA in writing 4 children young adults. Few of these words. More direct parsing of the work. Kindness.

At Solstice, students are in residence on campus for ten days, twice a year, for a total of five residencies over two years. During the 10-day residencies, students and faculty gather on Pine Manor College’s lovely, wooded campus a mere five miles from downtown Boston and attend workshops, classes, panel discussions, and readings. At the end of the residency, each student is matched with a faculty mentor with whom he or she will work individually during the six-month semester to follow. Take a virtual tour of the PMC campus !

Every year MFA students travel with faculty to a different country as a part of our innovative creative writing field seminars. Recent trips have included Peru, Vietnam, Iceland, Turkey, Ecuador, Brazil, England, Germany, and Costa Rica, as well as continental trips to New Orleans and Canada. Program tuition goes toward these trips, making them affordable for most students. More importantly, the trips are transformative for our students, whose writing becomes sharper and more nuanced when in an unfamiliar environment.

This format allows for the best of community inspiration and individual attention.
