MFA Creative Writing Programs

State By State List of Creative Writing MFA Programs

By Fall 2005, story workshopping occurred in the US in over 100 MFA programs and in more than 600 other creative writing programs – an explosion to nearly 800 degree conferring creative writing programs (along with hundreds of conferences and seminars) – up from merely 80 such programs in 1975. What is the MFA experience like? Read up on one such experience in the novel TEXAS MFA.
TEXAS MFA portrays Texas, a peculiar MFA workshop, and the making of novels of social change – a novel somewhat akin to Larry McMurtry’s lively novel of a young writer in Texas: All My Friends are Going to be Strangers.
