Visit the official programme website for more information


At the Adelphi University we offer a master degree in Creative Writing . Our faculty members include award-winning poets and novelists, and writers of short fiction and nonfiction. 

And because of our small class sizes, faculty members work closely with each student. Our events program and online presence—through Twitter, Facebook and our literary site, Village of Crickets—engage students in the extraordinarily open-ended possibilities of contemporary online writing. 

Why Should I Enroll? 

  • Because we are committed to maintaining our identity as an intimate, practical and cutting-edge program, we admit a small number of students each year so that each student can work closely and directly with our award-winning faculty. 
  • Most of our students benefit from our “Teaching of Writing” class and teach in the undergraduate writing program. 
  • Our Practicum introduces you to literary agents, publishers and other professionals in the literary community, and active engagement with leading literary organizations such as PEN America and Cave Canem Foundation, Inc.—as well as free membership for all students in AWP, the Association of Writers and Writing Programs—ensures you will have a rich experience of literary citizenship.
