Master of Fine Arts in Writing
The Graduate Program in Writing M.F.A. consists of several core classes and seminars taken over four semesters (two years), with the goal of producing a final manuscript, performance, or collaborative event.
There are three notable features of the new program. First, the heart of the program is a once-a-week core class, the Writing Studio, which is an open, democratic forum dedicated to the collective critique and discussion of student and faculty works in progress. Second, each student is offered one-on-one guided Mentorships with a chosen faculty member. Third, the program provides students with support and guidance to extend their cultural production and research interests into the the world in the form. Fieldwork Residencies: on-going residencies conducted in collaboration with an outside institution, community, organization, archive, occupational domain, or activist group. To see a growing list of our alliances with outside organizations and groups, see Alliances.
