The Stonecoast Vision

The Stonecoast Vision

One of the nation's most diverse, exciting, and rigorous low-residency MFA programs, the Stonecoast MFA in Creative Writing offers a superbly comprehensive yet thoroughly individualized two-year graduate education in the art of writing.

Each Stonecoast semester begins with a stimulating ten-day residency at the legendary Stone House on the coast of Maine's Casco Bay. During the semester, our award-winning faculty guide Stonecoast students in intensive one-on-one tutorials in creative nonfictionfictionpoetry, and popular fiction, with possibilities for elective work in other areas including scriptwritingtranslation, and cross-genre.  Monthly packets encompass original writing, revision, and critical essays and annotations as well as optional interdisciplinary research and internships in teaching, publishing, and community service/social justice.  Stonecoast's supportive, enlightened community helps you discover your independent voice while offering you the tools to communicate to a wide readership.
