M.F.A-Creative Writing Fiction
The MFA Fiction-writing program at Brooklyn College, rated one of the five up-and-coming programs in the nation by Ted Delaney in the special fiction issue (July 2007) of The Atlantic, is a two-year course that maintains an enrollment of twenty-five to thirty students. While every member of the ongoing and visiting faculty works according to his or her methods, we are united in our conviction that newer writers need a balance of encouragement and serious, thoroughly-considered feedback.
The curriculum is designed sequentially. Fiction-writing students take a writing workshop every semester. Beginning in the fall of 2004, the program will offer two traditional workshops and a novel-writing workshop each semester. The novel-writing workshop is meant to address the particular needs of students who are writing novels, and who would prefer to receive input on longer sections than a traditional workshop allows. The novel-writing workshops are open to second-year students and to first-year students in their second semesters.
