This blog is a collaborative effort by the Creative Writing MFA students, across genres, at the University of Wyoming. We are a diverse group of writers from all over, representing a range of disciplines. We are scientists, actors, athletes, musicians, dancers, photographers, editors, foodies, firefighters, winos, experienced world travelers, radio personalities, humanitarians, mountaineers, children of immigrants, descendants of Confederate and Union soldiers alike, gentlemen, ladies, teachers, and scholars. We also happen to write.
If you have any questions, or comments, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The University of Wyoming’s Creative Writing MFA program is an intensive two-year studio degree in poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction. Special features include a flexible curriculum, cross-genre workshops, opportunities for interdisciplinary study, and our Eminent Writers in Residence program, which brings distinguished authors to campus to work closely with our students. Our recent Eminent Writers include CA Conrad, Maggie Nelson, Brian Leung, Dinaw Mengestu, Sherwin Bitsui and Bhanu Kapil. This year we are excited to host Nam Le. We have a deeply committed faculty, a lively visiting writers series, an incomparable natural setting, and excellent funding for students, including teaching assistantships with light teaching loads, full tuition waivers, summer stipends, and support for travel and publication.
P&W lists the MFA at Wyoming as one of the top 50 programs in the nation (#30 for 2012), a top 25 program in nonfiction, a top 25 program in funding, and the top program for student-to-faculty ratio.
