Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing

The University of Wyoming's Creative Writing MFA program is an intensive two-year studio degree in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Special features include a flexible curriculum, cross-genre opportunities, opportunities for interdisciplinary study, and our Eminent Writers in Residence program, which brings distinguished authors to campus to work closely with our students. This year, our Eminent Writers are Dinaw Mengestu and Sherwin Bitsui. We have a deeply committed faculty, a lively visiting writers series, an incomparable natural setting, and full funding for students, including teaching assistantships with reasonable teaching loads, full tuition waivers, summer stipends, and support for travel and publication.

Poets Amaranth Borsuk and Andy Fitch recently released a fantastic collaborative book entitled As We Know (Subito Press), which has been called, “a masterpiece of cross-genre exploration by two artists at the top of their game.” As We Know attempts to intervene into the gendered history of editorial intervention as it has played out in the famous cases of figures such as Dorothy Wordsworth and Emily Dickinson.
