The MFA Program in Creative Writing is a two-year course of study leading to the MFA degree in creative nonfiction, fiction, or poetry. An optional third year in an alternate genre is available. After 20 years the SMC MFA in Creative Writing continues to thrive, distinguishing itself by its award winning faculty, its stellar alumni, and its development opportunities for students in teaching, publishing, and community engagement. Each entering student receives some form of scholarship, fellowship, or waiver. Priority deadline for admissions is December 10th (fee waiver included) and final deadline for admissions is January 31st ($50 application fee).
