Writing Seminars

We are a two-year low-residency Master of Fine Arts in Writing program, with ten-day residencies in January and June. Students work closely with distinguished and actively publishing faculty, their path determined by the reading discipline as well as the production of original work. Our mission is to connect the emerging writer with much of the best that has been done and to cultivate the critical skills that serve the writing as much as the reading.

The Writing Seminars office is open for remote meetings only. Please contact staff via email.
