The English Department is announcing that the MFA program has temporarily stopped accepting applications for students who want to specialize in Creative Nonfiction. Because of a reduction in the number of tenured and tenure-track Creative Writing faculty members, the CW faculty felt it would be most beneficial to students going forward to focus our resources on Fiction and Poetry. We will continue to offer high quality Creative Nonfiction classes at both the graduate and undergraduate levels and all currently enrolled students will be able to finish their degree in Creative Nonfiction. We will simply not be recruiting MFA students who want to write a Creative Nonfiction thesis, until we can provide them with an adequate number of qualified faculty. For the Creative Writing Coordinator's letter to students on this matter, click here.
