MFA in Writing & Publishing (Residential)

Faculty

Our faculty are multi-genre and cross-disciplinary innovators, as deeply committed to education as to their own writing practice.

Their books—collectively totaling over 50 titles—range from commercially produced bestsellers to handmade, precious single editions. These accomplished authors, who write as well as compose, direct, perform, exhibit, record, and more, are also esteemed, seasoned professors whose teaching expertise, invention, and rigor place them in the vanguard of literary arts pedagogy.
