MFA in Creative Writing

The University of Tampa's Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a low-residency program designed to help poets, fiction writers and creative nonfiction writers advance their command of craft through exposure to literature from a writerly perspective and with supportive critique and mentoring. The course of individualized study covers four semesters over two calendar years, followed by a fifth culminating residency. The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing focuses on individualized instruction, while fostering the rich interplay of participation in an extended literary community. As working writers, all of us seek to deepen the understanding of writing as an ongoing engagement with discovery and transformation.
