MFA in Creative Writing: Latin America
Accepting applications for Fall through July 15.
The next residency is in Rio de Janeiro
The 2016 residency is in Santiago, Chile. July 23 - August 6, 2016.
We are pleased to announce Queens' latest opportunity for writers seeking to further develop their craft while being immersed in, and inspired, by the multifaceted culture of Latin America.
Each academic year of this two year low-residency program begins with an annual 15-day residency abroad, rotating annually among Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Santiago. In addition to the program's creative writing curriculum in fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry, these residencies include a cultural curriculum specific to each city.
The residencies are followed by two consecutive semesters of distance learning. The program ends with a third and final graduating residency.
We offer study in five genres: fiction, young adult, creative nonfiction, poetry and writing for stage and screen.
