This program operates on an "alternating genre" admissions policy; fiction writers are admitted in even-numbered years and poets are admitted in odd-numbered years. The program features the student-run literary journal Devil's Lake and cross-genre workshops in creative nonfiction, cartooning, and playwriting.
For the 2016–2017 year, the program will accept fiction students.
