Our faculty brings diverse styles of writing together through workshops and lectures, and students are exposed to many different voices. Students may choose their mentors, and the program focuses on an individualized curriculum and instruction. To help our students with the publishing process, we invite editors, literary agents, and other publishing professionals to the residencies. Most of our students publish in literary magazines while still enrolled in the program, and many of our alumni have published books.
Our faculty are not only award-winning, acclaimed authors, but also skilled and devoted teachers.
Students are invited to apply for tuition awards (up to $7,000.00), scholarships, and graduate assistantships, to offset tuition costs.
