MFA in Creative Writing
AULA’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program was founded in 1997 as the nation’s first low-residency creative writing program on the west coast. At two 10-day residencies each year, students gather at the site of the world’s only MFA program specifically devoted to literature and the pursuit of social justice. Students return home for five month project periods during which they develop their craft under the supervision of writing mentors, and engage and meaningful field studies.
Rather than focusing exclusively on the completion of a single book-length final manuscript, the MFA program educates students in the various roles of the writer in society, teaching them to make a difference on the page and in the diverse communities where writers work and live.
