Write boldly. Read thoughtfully.

» MFA in Creative Writing

The MFA in Creative Writing at Chapman University encourages students to write boldly, read thoughtfully and live vibrantly. Our students and our faculty are here to bring big ideas to life in words and deliver those words to the world.

Whether you’re interested in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, screenwriting or a combination of genres, the MFA at Chapman University invites you to write better than you ever thought you could.

The exciting coursework ranges across literary and critical studies, creative writing, journalism, rhetoric and composition, digital humanities, creative and cultural industries, and linguistics. Our vibrant programs beyond the classroom include the John Fowles Center for Creative Writing, Tabula Poetica, the Chapman University-Orange High School Young Writers Workshop, and Pub(lishing) Crawl, all of which host events open to the public.

For further information on degree prerequisites, admission requirements, and a list of courses view the Graduate Course Catalog.
