        Creative Writing Graduate Programs

        Creative writing graduate students pursue a M.F.A. (Master of Fine Arts) degree. These students work to fine tune their craft by exploring story telling tools of narrative craft, character development, and literary tropes. Many creative writers aspire to be novelists or poets; some may be interested in pursuing a career in screenwriting or playwriting. Regardless of their chosen medium creative arts graduate students learn to utilize different writing tools to develop their own unique style and voice.
