The Newport MFA in Creative Writing

The Newport MFA in creative writing provides an intensive study of the craft of writing with dedicated faculty. Residencies consist of daily workshops, craft lectures, manuscript consultations, and keynote readings, initiating students into the writing life as well as the business of publishing and editing. Students spend the months between residencies writing and reflecting in an individualized mentorship with eminent writers.

The MFA in creative writing is dedicated to the rigor of graduate study, to providing outstanding guides and mentors in the field, and to balancing the solitude of writing with a dynamic community experience.
