Creative Writing Degree (MFA) | NSPE | The New School in NYC
  • IMG - MFA Writing

    Live the writer's life in New York City. Join a community of diverse voices, plug into New York's publishing world, and build a network that supports you through graduation and beyond.

    MFA Creative Writing students develop their craft in workshops and literature seminars led by an internationally recognized faculty with deep ties to New York publishing and the city's literary scene. Courses and events are held in the evening, enabling students to work during the day while in the program.

    This two-year, full-time graduate program offers concentrations in:

    • Fiction
    • Nonfiction
    • Poetry
    • Writing for Children

    Many voices. One community.

    The New School offered the first academic creative writing workshop in 1931 and pioneered a new philosophy of education. The idea: students would contribute their own lives and their own stories to their educations. Today, The New School continues to celebrate and cultivate daring and diverse new voices. The value of this approach is reflected in the publications and achievements of our graduates and faculty, updated regularly on our blog.
