About

We are one of the premier MFA programs in the Midwest, supported by a lively literary community in the country’s 12th largest metropolis, Indianapolis.

Overview

Within our 36-hour studio MFA program, we will design a curriculum just for you, based on your artistic and professional interests in fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. Our electives include screenwriting, young adult fiction, literary editing, publishing, and teaching creative writing. As a full-time student, you can finish program requirements—10 mostly evening courses and six hours of formal thesis work—in two years.

You’ll have opportunities to edit content for our literary magazine or small press, have coffee or a meal with guests of the Visiting Writers Series, and work with top-flight, full-time faculty. The Efromyson Center for Creative Writing, one of the few such dedicated writing centers at any university, provides a cozy home for classes, quiet writing space, or after-hours socializing. Many graduates say they “never want to leave” the program; read our blog to see why.
