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 nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and popular fiction, with possibilities for elective work in other areas including scriptwriting, translation, and cross-genre. Stonecoast’s supportive, enlightened community helps you discover your independent voice while offering you the tools to communicate to a wide readership.
In celebration of our talented faculty, the Stonecoast Faculty Blog was created to allow our decorated teachers and authors to share their insights through the power of social media. Check the blog for regular postings from faculty and guest lecturers. Enjoy!
