Founded in 1995, the MFA Program in Creative Writing is a two-year, full-time course of study leading to the M.F.A. degree in creative nonfiction, fiction, or poetry.

The MFA Program in Creative Writing embodies the finest qualities of Saint Mary’s College: an interest in the student as a person, an emphasis on shared inquiry and critical thinking, and a respect for new and various ways of knowing. We offer small, aesthetically diverse classes, an outstanding permanent faculty, numerous distinguished visiting writers and editors, and close faculty-student contact. MFA candidates develop a thorough knowledge of their genre and become a part of a supportive arts community, while immersed in the rich Bay Area literary tradition.

Applicants are automatically eligible for the Program's merit-based scholarships. In 2012-13 every MFA Candidate received a partial scholarship or teaching fellowship.

Class of 2013 & 2014!

-- We attend to the individual writer’s relationship to language, giving high-quality, personal attention to each student in the two-year program;

-- We see the development of the writing project of each student as a powerful part of the development of the whole person;

-- We emphasize the crafts of writing and reading in using pluralistic, imaginative, and practical approaches to aesthetic development;

-- We model community both in the classroom and in the larger arts community attending to the powerful role of our developing artists in a culture that is thirsty for the knowledge only the arts can bring.
