About

The Red Earth Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing @ Oklahoma City University offers you the opportunity to study creative writing without sacrificing your life.

Overview

Our program connects you with experienced creative and professional writers who will nurture your creative talent in workshops, peer groups, and individual instruction.

Housed at a private university in an urban yet quiet setting, the program connects you with experienced creative and professional writers who will nurture your creative talent in workshops, peer groups, and individual instruction. The Red Earth MFA program gives you a chance to concentrate on your writing while working with writers like you who wish to grow creatively and professionally in a collaborative environment. Our students are warm, welcoming, and supportive--a true community.

Programme Structure

During your semesters (between residencies), you'll work from home, reading and writing in your genre, reading books and articles on craft, in the history of your genre, and on writing practices. You'll be supported in your writing and reading by a close professional relationship with your assigned faculty mentor. You will send your mentor a series of five packets that will contain your creative writing, annotations of books and articles you've read, and a process letter which will serve as a conversation starter for your mentor's reply. Mentors will, in turn, comment on your writing and your annotations, and will send your packet back to you with a letter of reply that might cover anything from establishing a writing practice to handling specific craft elements in your writing to suggestions for further reading.
