Alumni

An MFA program is only as strong as the students that make up the experience. GMU MFA alumni have gone on to careers in publishing, teaching, higher education, media, communications, technical writing, editing, project management, government, and more. Our Alumni join us each year for alumni readings and various events and programming, such as Fall for the Book, New Leaves, and Visiting Writers public readings. If you haven't come back yet for one of these events, please check out our upcoming events because we would love to see you.

Alumni, we want to hear from you! Send us your news and updates here. We regularly publish alumni news in our department newsletters, so please keep us posted on your accomplishments.
