A Message from Mason Creative Writing

Mason Creative Writing, along with the entire George Mason University family, is excited to be gathering together again in Fall 2021 after such unprecedented experiences for all of us. 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

We are currently accepting MFA applications for Fall 2022 starts. Since travel may still be challenging for many people, prospective MFA students can watch a Virtual Info Session from the dropdown menu under For Prospective Students. 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 2021 enrollment.

We are especially thrilled to share the news of the launch of Watershed Lit: Center for Literary Engagement and Publishing Practice, which makes Mason the perfect place to cultivate your literary art, gain knowledge of and experience with many types of publishing, and be part of a thriving creative community.
