We are a fully funded MFA Program!

Welcome to the SIU MFA Creative Writing Accomplishments Page where we can tell a little about our program and brag about our beloved graduates!

The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a studio-academic program designed to assist talented students in developing their skills as poets or fiction writers. While the MFA is the accepted credential for teachers of creative writing, our program gives primary emphasis to the development of students as writers. There are also a number of opportunities to gain experience in literary publishing while interning at Crab Orchard Review or SIU Press as well as opportunities to teach in the community. Students may even join an organization like Graduate Writers Forum and work on orgazining our spring literary festival, Little Grassy.
