  1. For those of us who plan to apply for a Creative Writing MFA in 2021 (start date 2022)
  2. Hello! I hope that this is the right place to ask this question. I'm currently looking for schools in the U.S. with strong courses/a big emphasis on speculative and fantasy fiction. So if a school has a strong creative writing program but doesn't have a focus on speculative/fantasy fiction, I would not be looking for it here. (I'm definitely keeping my options open though and it won't be my only deciding factor!) Getting really specific, classes on fantasy world building/culture building are really what I'm looking for but I'm open to absolutely anything that has a focus on popular f
  3. I'm going to be applying to Creative Writing MFA programs this fall. I currently have a list of six fully funded programs (I am not in a position to afford grad school tuition, or to go into significant debt) and I am looking for some guidance as to whether my list is a reasonable one. I know that most of the schools listed are highly competitive, and I would really appreciate some insight on some less competitive schools (which I understand is a big ask, since I am looking for full funding). Here are the schools I have listed currently: Boston University Brown University Flo
  4. Hey Everyone, Since it's the start of summer, I wanted to reach out and see if there were any lurking MFA Creative Writing students attending University of New Hampshire in the fall! Of course everyone who has been accepted or otherwise are welcome. đź’™
  5. I've been accepted to Butler University's MFA in Creative Writing. Yay! Anyone else planning to attend or thinking about it? Any advice, thoughts or concerns to discuss?
  6. Hi! I've gotten funded offers from both Bowling Green State University and Old Dominion University. I've drawn up a list of pros and cons, but I'm still not able to choose between the two universities. Can anyone give me some input on the reputation of these two programs? I'm aware that BGSU has one of the oldest programs in the country and is quite reputed. The faculty list is pretty impressive at ODU. Please help me, I'm really confused!
  7. I've posted this to the Questions forum of the website as well to expand its reach. Cambridge University has offered me an interview in the program to which I've applied, which is the Creative Writing MSt. As thrilled as I am to be given the opportunity to sit an interview for Oxbridge, I'm quite nervous (I don't know if my username gives that away), because I've only ever sat interviews for jobs and internships, never for academic entry. I've been watching YouTube to gather advice, as well as scrolling through Reddit. Has anyone who's ever sat Oxbridge interviews, ideally for Creative Writing

  9. Wish to start my masters degree in Creative Writing this Fall and have applied to these Universities: Oxford Brookes (conditional) Cardiff (unconditional) I would like to decide as soon as possible to be able to start sorting out all other things... Which of these Unis might provide with better writing degree...? Which Uni has better facilities...? Which city is better...? I have graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science and hope to become an editor. So I would like to know which university is a better scope for me, and being an international student how is it living there?
  10. Hi, so here's the deal. I got accepted into UChicago's MAPH in Creative Writing with a scholarship of $12000 (of course, it isn't really much keeping in mind the total tuition for the program.) I've also been accepted into an MA in English program with a creative writing concentration at Texas Tech University, which offers me a teaching stipend. The program at Texas Tech is decent (plus cheaper) and I've spoken to a few current graduate students and honestly, I was mentally prepared that I'd be accepting their offer. However, I didn't really expect UChicago to accept me. Naturally, I'm quite
  11. I have a pretty difficult decision in front of me. I got accepted to a few English MA programs (one of them is a super-ideal program) and one MFA program in creative writing, and I'm not sure about which path to follow. I really, really want to attend an MFA. I see creative writing as a life-long pursuit, and I think getting an MFA right now would be a great step in that pursuit. The "problem" (I realize how lucky I am to have this problem) is that I'm unsure about this particular MFA program. It's only a few years old, not as well known or renowned as other places, and is taught by
  12. I am applying for my MFA in creative writing. my grades are great and i've been told I have a strong and impressive portfolio but gaining entrance to a creative writing MFA program is very difficult, competitive, relative, and highly selective so I am not a shoo-in anywhere. For one of my graduate applications I submitted the application but put off submitting the fee and then my application status said my fee was waived but there was no explanation. is this normal? does it mean anything? another school I applied to sent me a hand written letter saying they are "thrilled" I submitted
  13. I've been accepted into the MFA in Creative Writing at Oregon State University. (yay!) It is their Low-Residency program, so mostly online, which means they don't offer much funding, since I can't be a TA. I'm also applying to Anticoh and UC Riverside Low-Res. I am having a hard time locating funding for such a specific situation. I'm Latina, first-generation graduate, their must be something out their for me, right?? Please help!
  14. No forum for CW PhD applicants this year, so I figured why not? Sharing anxiety is fun. I'm applying in fiction, and still waiting to hear from Albany, Ohio University, and Cincinnati. I'm assuming OU is a rejection not yet sent, but am holding out hopes with Cincinnati and Albany. Anybody have any intelligence they're willing to share? How's everybody else doing?
  15. It looks like the program is fully funded, but I can't find any info on stipend amount, etc. I really wish some of these programs would improve their online presence! Anyway, any knowledge or insight would be appreciated!
  16. Hi all, I am waiting on pins and needles to hear back from my MFA programs and I'm trying to put my energy into something worthwhile, so here I am. What schools have ya'll applied to? What are your top schools? What's your genre? How many times have you applied before? Has anyone heard back from anywhere yet? I know it's early in the game but I've had so much nervous energy just thinking about it. Anyone else? How's everybody feeling? Good luck on your acceptances!
  17. Hey everyone! I am fall 2019 applicant for poetry MFA programs. I've seen that people have been getting acceptances back from Ohio State's program and I was just wondering... has anyone been rejected? I'm not sure how they do their send outs but I was just wondering why they wouldn't have sent out rejections if they're sending out acceptances! Thanks
  18. Why I am putting myself through this again? I do not have an answer, but I am here. Anyone else out there going through the portfolio/statement of purpose process, still? My first application goes out next week (University of Arizona). I am beyond nervous. How do you decide when everything is "done"? When is anything ever done, haha
  19. Hi! So I didn’t get in anywhere for an MFA In Creative Writing. I’m now trying to look into different options. Does anyone know good programs that are either online and still have open admissions or places with rolling admissions?
  20. Hi everyone! Can anyone let me know if they hear back for MFA Creative Writing? I’m waiting and it’s so hard. Some schools had December deadlines and I don’t know when the letters come in. Is it by mail or email? I applied to CalArts, SAIC, Columbia College, NYU, and Columbia University. thanks!!!
  21. Hi, all! I applied to VCFA (Vermont College of Fine Arts) back in November--and STILL have not heard back, even though they say they review apps on a rolling basis, and you should hear back in 4-6 weeks. Has anyone out there heard back?? I applied to Summer Residency 2019, for an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
  22. Hi everyone! I saw that Ohio State started sending out acceptances already :0 but the rest of us still have at least a month or two to wait. It's my first time applying to MFA programs and I was curious––what do y'all like to write about? What kind of work did you put in your samples (because I'm pretty sure we all worry about sending in something too cliché lol)? I personally enjoy writing coming-of-age stories that are a bit surreal/whimsical ?and queer––of course.
  23. Looking to get some advice from the folks here. I've just started at a 3 year MFA program and I'm not a fan of the location. This is definitely my fault, as I should have visited but it was by far the best offer I received and I felt the need to leave my home of 17 years. I feel I will most likely settle into the program itself but my feelings for the city won't change, and thus, I need to prepare to leave after a year. The primary issue, however, is how I would transfer back home. Only 1 out of the 5 programs I'm considering back home (NYC) is a 3 year program. The rest are 2 years. I persona
