Accepting applications for Summer 2019 residency now! Study poetry with faculty Hoa Nguyen and Laura Van Prooyen at Miami University in Oxford, OH and earn your MFA.
Small, intensive and supportive, merging a playful approach to contemporary experimentation with an ambitious exploration of literary traditions, Miami draws students from across the country and beyond to classes in creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, multimedia and performance writing.
The Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program is a two-year, four-semester course of individualized study designed to help poets, fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, and hybrid-genre writers hone their skill and work towards mastering their craft. Combining Miami University’s long tradition of rigorous graduate English education with the best aspects of the low-residency model, students will learn to read and think as writers, while benefiting from working one-on-one from home with literary mentors.
Students will become part of an extended literary community, drawing inspiration from their mentors and fellow students, as well as rich literary traditions.
