All students are fully funded.
This program is affiliated with the Black Mountain Institute. Students have the opportunity to interact with BMI creative writing fellows and international writers seeking refuge through the City of Asylum program.
The MFA program has an international focus; students complete a translation as part of their degree, spend ten weeks abroad in a country of their choice, and have the option of pursuing a Masters International degree in conjunction with service in the Peace Corps. Some MFA students have the opportunity to teach undergraduate creative writing courses. Editorial positions are available to MFA students on the journals Witness and Interim. Students also have the opportunity to read their work at Neon Lit, a monthly student-run reading series held at downtown art galleries.
