I know what you’re thinking: Another MFA program in creative writing? Isn’t the world full of those? Aren’t they sprouting like mushrooms? You may be right. There are a lot of graduate programs in creative writing, and graduate students today have more options than ever if they want to pursue an advanced degree. But we believe we’re building something special here at WKU, and we want to tell you about it. It’s true that our program features the things you would expect to find anywhere else. We offer an intensive, two-year course of study in which students work hard to hone their craft as writers. But we also offer so much more: tracks in fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and scriptwriting.


Core Faculty Includes:

Poetry: Tom Hunley Fiction: David Bell Nonfiction: Dale Rigby Scriptwriting: Jessica Folk
