Our graduate program in creative writing is a three-year program leading to the Master of Fine Arts degree. We offer the intimacy of a small program with the advantages of a larger English department.
Students work closely with our nationally and internationally published writing faculty and have opportunities to study with top literary scholars, interact with visiting writers, and gain experience in both teaching and literary editing. We offer tracks in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, and all of our MFA students receive financial support. Our community of writers consists of dedicated faculty and students who have come to Carolina to commit themselves to the writing and study of literature. Many of our students begin publishing during their time here.
