Click here to find out more about our program, or email our Student Affairs Administrator with questions!While the purpose of the program is, above all, to give students a rigorous background in the fundamentals of creative work by providing them with the opportunity to study with established poets and prose writers, it differs from the professional, free-standing creative writing programs at other universities in seeing itself as an integral part of the university’s intellectual life, and most particularly in providing opportunities for interdisciplinary work.

Students from Latin America, Spain and the USA come to our department to develop as writers under the guidance of an award-winning faculty.

Our department also offers an online MFA in Creative Writing.

Writers of national and international distinction visit campus throughout the year to participate in the Althea Ward Clark W’21 Reading Series and to discuss their work.
