Creative Writing has been a vital part of the Vanderbilt English Department for nearly a century.  Now each year a small, select class of talented writers of fiction and poetry enroll in Vanderbilt’s two-year MFA Program in Creative Writing, and many undergraduates who major in English choose a special concentration in Creative Writing.  We invite you to join us as we continue to build upon the tradition of excellent writing at Vanderbilt.

Matt Baker, who received his MFA in 2012, has written about his expericence as a student in the program in “An Embarrassment of Riches,” published in Vanderbilt Magazine. Read his article here. Baker’s novel, If You Find This (Little Brown, 2015), was nominated for a 2016 Edgar Award and was named a Booklist Top Ten Debut [.]

Kingston University is proud to offer the first Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in the UK. This course offers talented and aspiring writers the chance to refine their skills under the tutelage of acclaimed professionals while receiving accredited training and experience in teaching in higher education.

The unique combination of creative and practical skills provided on this course will prepare you simultaneously for a career as a publishing writer and an accredited teacher of creative writing.

Admissions to the MFA will based upon the quality of a writing sample as well as an assessment of your publishing potential.

The M.F.A. at Vanderbilt is a two-year program requiring four semesters of graduate work in writing workshops and seminars. Students enroll in a workshop and two seminars during each of their first three semesters. Then during the final semester, they work intensively on a creative thesis. The thesis is a substantial piece of creative writing: a novel, a collection of short stories or creative non-fiction, or a collection of poems.

All first-year students work as Writing Consultants in the Vanderbilt Writing Studio, and second year students teach an introductory creative writing workshop in their genre.

The Master of Fine Arts program at Wichita State University, now in its 42nd year, is a three-year, studio-academic program in fiction or poetry writing with students in full residence. All of our MFA students receive financial support from the university through graduate teaching assistantships and fellowships which cover their tuition and provide a stipend. The Huffington Post has named our program to its list of “Top 25 Underrated Creative Writing MFA Programs.”

At the undergraduate level, we offer Bachelor of Arts students a 33-hour major in creative writing with classes in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction writing. Both the graduate and undergraduate programs are part of Wichita State’s Department of English.

Our MFA program-an intensive, three-year studio-academic experience in the writing of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction - joins 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.

For more than 30 years, writers have come to American University to develop their work and exchange ideas in the District’s only creative writing MFA program. Our graduate workshops provide a rigorous yet supportive environment where students explore a range of approaches to the art and craft of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

As an MFA student at American, you are free to pursue a single genre or explore several. You will acquire a deeper understanding of your own work and hone your skills in a collaborative setting.

Here s my completely subjective, take-with-a-grain-of-salt list: Iowa, Syracuse, Arkansas, FSU, Arizona, UC Riverside. Lots of others. University of Houston. The single best source for asking questions like this are the Speakeasy message board at Poets and Writers: http://www.pw.org/speak.htm. There you ll find lists aplenty, including a lot of armchair quarterbacking about costs, quality, etc. You also should check out Tom Kealey s book "The Creative Writing MFA Handbook," which talks at length about how to choose schools and how to get in. You want to consider a few things before you apply. First, how badly do you need funding? Many programs cover tuition and pay a very small stipend (usually around 10-12K a year) to have grad students teach their freshman comp classes. Columbia has an excellent program, but unless you happen to have an extra $100K lying around, don t even bother applying, because that s what you ll need to cover tuition and the costs of living in New York City. From what I ve heard, Iowa funds maybe half of its students. FSU, where I m currently entering my third year MFA in fiction, funds almost every student. So do Syracuse, Arkansas, and many other programs. Second, is the program right for you? If you re a highly experimental fiction writer -- which I am not -- FSU may not be right for you. Brown has a reputation for supporting avant garde writing, as did a few other schools that I didn t bother looking at (because I knew they wouldn t be right for me). How do you feel about the faculty? Who would you like to work with? The best question you can ask when you interview at a program is "How is it like to work with so-and-so?" Ask other students, ask the head of the program, and finally, if you can swing it, ask so-and-so herself. You may just find yourself invited into so-and-so s already-overenrolled workshop. Other questions: small program or big program? If your program admits only six students per year, you re going to be hearing a lot of the same feedback workshop after workshop. On the other hand, larger programs can feel too impersonal or competitive. The last thing you want to look out for is the quality of the student that graduates from that program. Say what you will about Iowa or Columbia, but students from those programs tend to publish very well. Beware the program with the illustrious faculty whose students never seem to publish anywhere. That may be a sign that the faculty are treating the program as a kind of extended summer camp for themselves, and not supporting their students particularly well. Or, just as bad, it may mean that the program doesn t yet attract the quality of student it deserves. In workshops, you re going to learn a lot from your fellow students -- I know I have. Try to find a program that attracts the best students possible. Last advice: attend the absolutely mammoth AWP Conference. There you ll find students from almost every program, and they will usually be more than happy to answer your questions over beer. Or wine. Or vodka. This is a long post, I realize, but it s a complicated question, and it merits a thorough answer. But do check out some books on the subject, and the Speakeasy message board. You ll find better answers to you questions, and may end up corresponding with someone who is actually attending the program you re interested in. Good luck!

It was 2am when Jethro fell out of the cab in front of his house. Gently, he opened the front door and came inside. Silently he crept up the stairs then he heard Magnolia scream out, "You DO realize that you are a Moron, right! Don t come into this room and keep the noise down." "I m trying my best..that s all I can say" Jethro replied. They were never the Perfect Match, but it always led to arguements whenever Jethro went out with the boys, especially Darrel. Magnolia had come to the bedroom door with anger and sorrow in here eyes. "Try NOT to look so morid, eh?" said Jethro, "at least I came home this time." "You jeeeeeest don t git it, do ya, Why don t you go off and marry Darrel? I ll see him in the morning and lets see what the cockroach from hell has to say about that. "Hmm" Jethro pondered, "Gotta do more than jest wish on a star, little lady. Maybe I ll see him in my dreams". OK, OK, it s 7am Saturday morning, and that is the best I can do. Thanks for a bit of fun.

The M.F.A. at Vanderbilt is a two-year program requiring four semesters of graduate work in writing workshops and seminars. Students enroll in a workshop and two seminars during each of their first three semesters. Then during the final semester, they work intensively on a creative thesis. The thesis is a substantial piece of creative writing: a novel, a collection of short stories or creative non-fiction, or a collection of poems.

All first-year students work as Writing Consultants in the Vanderbilt Writing Studio, and second year students teach an introductory creative writing workshop in their genre.

The Master of Fine Arts program at Wichita State University, now in its 42nd year, is a three-year, studio-academic program in fiction or poetry writing with students in full residence. All of our MFA students receive financial support from the university through graduate teaching assistantships and fellowships which cover their tuition and provide a stipend. The Huffington Post has named our program to its list of “Top 25 Underrated Creative Writing MFA Programs.”

At the undergraduate level, we offer Bachelor of Arts students a 33-hour major in creative writing with classes in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction writing. Both the graduate and undergraduate programs are part of Wichita State’s Department of English.

Our MFA program-an intensive, three-year studio-academic experience in the writing of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction - joins 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.
