M.F.A. in Creative Writing

Learn to create new worlds through skillful writing.

An intimate program, Adelphi’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing offers students the opportunity to specialize in four major genres: poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and dramatic writing. We offer unique hands-on experiences to meet with writers, agents, editors and arts administrators to learn firsthand about the professional life of a writer. M.F.A. student will also learn the practical procedures of submitting a manuscript and applying for grants and jobs.

We have generous scholarships, internships and teaching opportunities, including the chance to teach a section of the undergraduate creative writing course.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of Adelphi’s connections to New York City’s lively arts scenes and our relationships with organizations such as PEN, AWP and Cave Canem.
