What you will study
This stimulating environment fosters the development of talented writers of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. The Creative Writing MFA program offered at New York University is not defined by courses alone, but by a life built around writing.
Through innovative literary outreach programs, a distinguished public reading series, an exciting public student reading series, special literary seminars with master writers, and the production of a high-quality literary journal, students participate in a dynamic literary community actively engaged in all aspects of the literary arts—writing, reading, teaching, publishing and community outreach.
Students also have the opportunity to enjoy America's most literary terrain; New York University is situated in the heart of Greenwich Village, a part of the city that has always been home to writers.
