Program Description:

This one-of-a-kind program teaches writers to create – and market – the fiction that sells. It is designed for those authors who wish to write within the popular fiction genres such as romance, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mystery in the adult, children’s or young adult markets. Seton Hill’s flexible, low-residency format allows you to earn a master of fine arts degree while working full-time or caring for a family. One-on-one mentoring by established writers enables students to develop a novel-length writing project in a genre of their choice. Week-long residencies twice per year inform and enliven the writing experience, bringing students together on Seton Hill’s campus to learn the basics and complexities of popular fiction. Each residency also includes special events designed to help students learn from working authors and other industry professionals.
