About

Our Creative Writing program at University of North Carolina Wilmington —an intensive, three-year studio-academic experience in the writing of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction—joins students who share a common passion and faculty members who provide critical support of their work.

Overview

The faculty of the Department of Creative Writing  at University of North Carolina Wilmington view MFA students as colleagues-in-the-making. To help initiate them into the profession, we offer a series of panels and workshops designed to address practical issues that lie outside the scope of the writing workshop.

Key Features 

  • Our faculty members consider it a privilege to teach in such a community, and our invitation to successful candidates to join our MFA community is an equal privilege and should be regarded as such.
