What will I learn?

MFA in Creative Writing can help you make those dreams into reality. In the past three years, our alumni and students have published over 47 books, in addition to hundreds of articles, essays, stories, and poems. Our concentration in publishing/editing has helped students get internships and jobs at magazines and publishing houses alike.

As a student in our program, you can pursue the study of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and screenwriting. Within these genres you can pursue concentrations in publishing/editing, spiritual writing, or literary health and healing.

Our alumni have been up to some great things since graduating, including the creation of After Enders, a website dedicated to fostering a lifelong community for the Fairfield University MFA in Creative Writing family. The site offers past, present and future students a unique blend of practical advice and creative inspiration based on the personal experience of MFA graduates or faculty members.

No matter which writing path you pursue, you’ll receive the support and guidance of our award-winning faculty during the one-on-one mentoring sessions, as well as many opportunities to collaborate during on-campus activities and online - illustrating our commitment to your well-being and success.
