Our two-year fulltime program offers tracks in creative nonfiction, fiction, or poetry with the option for a third year in an alternate genre.

Students are admitted on the basis of original manuscripts, letters of recommendation, and undergraduate records. Our students hold degrees from fields as diverse as biology, English, business, economics and history, but most have had some exposure to a writing workshop. Students range in age from 22 to 75 and come from all over the world.

All applicants are automatically considered for the Program's merit-based scholarships and tuition waivers by way of their application materials. No additional materials are required. Check out the funding tab below for more information.

Tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year is $26,000 for entering students. Tuition does not increase for students enrolled fulltime in the program for their two years.

December 10, 2016 is the priority deadline for admission and includes an application fee waiver ($50 value). January 31, 2017 is the final deadline and requires a $50 application fee.
