Manhattanville College’s 36-credit Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program is open to graduates of accredited colleges and universities who demonstrate a strong potential in writing and critical thinking. 


Writing will be judged according to its literary merit and its indication of the applicant’s readiness to study writing and literature at the graduate level. Courses are scheduled in the evenings in order to meet the needs of working adults. The Creative Writing program at Manhattanville College can be completed in two years, though students may work at their own pace, beginning in either the fall or spring semester — or with Summer Writers’ Week, a comprehensive week-long program that consists of writing workshops in the mornings and special events in the afternoons. Writers’ Week is offered annually at the end of June.

Whether you want to earn an MFA or simply attend public readings, open mic nights, or other special events, Manhattanville welcomes writers and aspiring writers to join its dynamic literary community.
