Expand and develop your creative practice by joining our dynamic community of writers and artists. The MFA of the Americas is a two-year, low-residency program in creative writing with degrees in Prose and Poetry in the Expanded Field. Our program embraces all of the Americas, geographically and culturally, encouraging you to grow as a writer and global citizen. Designed to fit into your already full lives, the program allows learning and life to coalesce around the reading, writing, seeing and listening that shapes your work. We gather twice annually for ten days of workshops, performances and artist talks in an energizing community of writers. These residencies rotate between the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and various international locations in the Americas. Between residencies, students exchange original work with a faculty mentor; the program culminates in a student's final project, reading, and craft talk. You are admitted to the program primarily on the strength of your application work sample.
