Program Description:

This new MA program, launched in 2004-2005, draws both on the expertise of the faculty at the university and on the extraordinary vitality of Toronto's writing community. All students complete course-work, participate in a Writing Workshop, and produce a book-length Writing Project in a genre of their choice, with the guidance of a published author assigned as an advisor. Uniting academic and creative pursuits, the program is designed to prepare participants for careers as professional writers, yet it will also qualify those wishing to pursue further graduate studies.
