Creative Writing at Mason

Located just outside Washington, D.C., the Creative Writing Program at Mason offers both MFA and BFA degrees to students who come from around the nation and the world. Our MFA is a three-year residency program with tracks in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Our BFA, one of only 30 nationwide, covers all three genres without exceeding the norm of 120 credits for an undergraduate degree.

Both the MFA and BFA are led and taught by our award-winning faculty members who combine excellence in writing with a dedication to teaching. Our alumni are nationally recognized for their own literary achievements.
