Mfa Creative Writing Application Advice
We will then schedule an interview, after which we would hope to offer you a place. If you are on the long list you will hear the news early in April.
If there is a place available, we will schedule an interview.
Due to winter break, applicants are encouraged to wait until after January 30, 2019 to check their application status.
If you're a fiction writer, send us 20-25 pages (a short story, the start of a novel, or several short stories that total 20-25 pages). If you're applying for our creative nonfiction program, send us no more than 20 pages of prose memoir writing, which can be one or more personal essays or an extract from a longer memoir piece.
Teaching experience is highly regarded in those applicants applying for teaching based aid.
We'll look at your grades, of course; but what we are really hungry for is talent, so we need to read what you can write.
To check how successful your letter is, try changing the name Hunter to Iowa (or NYU or Michigan).
If the resulting letter makes no sense it is absolutely perfect.’ We’re revising our Memoir MFA which means our application dates have changed and the new course will be retitled Creative Nonfiction. For this reason our next application deadline is not until February 1, 2020, when you should submit a 500-word proposal outlining your creative nonfiction idea.
