Mason Creative Writing embraces a community of writers, faculty, and students through our undergraduate BFA and graduate MFA programs. Coupled with the new Watershed Lit: Center for Literary Engagement and Publishing Practice, Mason Creative Writing is the perfect place to cultivate your literary art, gain knowledge of and experience with many types of publishing and literary citizenship, and be part of a thriving creative scene.  

We are currently accepting MFA applications for Fall 2022 starts. Prospective MFA students can watch a Virtual Info Session from the dropdown menu under For Prospective Students or email for a link to a recording of our recent Online Open House. Want to meet faculty and current students or sit in on a class? We can arrange it!

Application deadlines are January 15 for priority funding consideration, February 15 to still be considered for possible funding, and April 1 to still be considered for fall 2022 enrollment.

Student and faculty safety, as well as the safety of all those who visit us, remains our highest priority. For the latest information about Mason's Safe Return to Campus, click here.
