The Creative Writing program from University of Missouri–St. Louis is designed as a terminal degree. It allows a select group of student writers an extraordinary opportunity to learn the craft of writing from the inside out.
The methods of instruction are simple but effective: writing workshops in fiction and poetry; seminar classes on writing craft; assistant editorial work on our nationally distributed literary magazine, Natural Bridge. Students in the UMSL MFA program work closely with our distinguished faculty. In the final semesters of study, each student develops a book-length thesis. UMSL MFA graduates have published books in fiction and poetry, won prestigious awards, and placed poems, stories and essays in hundreds of esteemed literary journals.
