Our program takes both literary and popular commercial genres seriously. We are not afraid of a good story, a strong character, or a rhyme. All courses include both extensive critique of student work along with sustained study and imitation of genres. The program includes on-campus intensive seminars and a conference, "Writing the Rockies," for two weeks during three consecutive summers in July (two summers for MA). The non-residency study requires four academic semesters (two for MA) during which students work on-line in classes and one-on-one with faculty.
The program offers concentrations in poetry with an emphasis on versecraft, genre fiction, screenwriting for film and television, and publishing. It offers a two-year MFA degree, as well as a one-year MA degree, and a one-year certificate in publishing.
