About

A Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing (Online)  from Drexel University should be more than just a writing workshop. It should prepare you for your post-degree career while giving you the space to grow and develop your own unique writing voice.

Overview

Drexel University’s two-year, low-residency MFA in Creative Writing is designed with the university’s commitment to experiential and career-focused education in mind. 

Online workshops, reading tutorials, and one-on-one packet exchanges with notable published writers will help you deepen your understanding of your craft, while residencies and professional development will prepare you with the skills and connections you need to succeed after completing your creative writing degree.

Drexel University is closely monitoring external events and will post updates if changes should occur to the MFA in Creative Writing’s in-person residencies or teaching assistantships. The Drexel MFA Creative Writing (Online) course of study is fully adaptable to remote-learning.
