Denise Roell
Administrative Assistant to the Graduate Program

The Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program is a two-year, four-semester course of individualized study designed to help poets, fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, and hybrid-genre writers hone their skill and work towards mastering their craft.  

  • Combining Miami University’s long tradition of rigorous graduate English education with the best aspects of the low-residency model, students will learn to read and think as writers, while benefiting from working one-on-one from home with literary mentors.
  • Students will become part of an extended literary community, drawing inspiration from their mentors and fellow students, as well as rich literary traditions.

Applications open August 15th for the 2018 Winter Residency, held Jan 13-20, 2018 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
