Modeled on studio art training, SAIC’s two-year MFA in Writing program celebrates writing as art, and offers a fresh alternative to other workshop-driven writing programs. One-on-one graduate projects with stellar faculty are the heart of our curriculum--leaving room for longer, wilder and more ambitious work. Students tap the unique potential of transdisciplinary writing in an art school, connected with a world-class art museum. Our writers cross freely between poetry, fiction, playwriting/screenwriting, non-fiction and into painting, performance, film, sound, fashion, photo, etc. Writing students who demonstrate a studio practice can apply for studio space and exhibit in the Sullivan Galleries’ MFA Spring Show.
