项目的亮点

完成校友

Our creative writing MA/MFA program boasts of not just several but hundreds of published 或者产生了校友. That’s because our faculty don’t say good-bye when you leave our program; rather, as they put it, “We stay with you.”

由代理商和编辑审阅

Every student’s thesis is read by a professional agent, editor, director or producer, providing valuable feedback, advice for the manuscript's eventual publication/production, 以及对出版界的洞察力.

奖学金和研究生助学金

Most low-residency MFA programs can’t offer scholarships, but our program has six of them, and six graduate assistantships (with Etruscran Press, Kaylie Jones Books and Blue Moon/HaveScripts) to help make our already low tuition more affordable.
