Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at the New Hampshire Institute of Art

MFA in Writing

“On the one hand, NHIA’s Writing program is a possibility space for hybridity and cross-pollination with other genres and art forms; on the other hand, a place where writers come to a deep understanding about what they need in today’s publishing landscape.” ~ Monica Bilson , Program Director






WRITE YOUR FUTURE

Our two-year MFA in Writing program features intensive 10-day residencies every January and June during which you will participate in workshops focused on examining your personal relationship to language and storytelling and to discovering your original voice as a writer. You will also join our Photography and Visual Arts students to engage in interdisciplinary work across programs.


Each residency has a thematic lens intended to help students reach across disciplines. Themes, which have included Food, Migration, Borders, and Fear, are featured in a single day of events known as the Concurrent Curriculum.


Between residencies, you will be assigned to a faculty mentor with focused expertise for a deep dive into your genre and to build on the insights made during the residency. Our program is inherently non-genre specific; traditional writers co-exist with immersive storytellers and interdisciplinary artists with the common principle being story. Come and experience:

- Individualized flexible mentoring with established writers;
- Interdisciplinary immersion during every residency;
- Seminars that explore craft, theory and strategies for creating a sustainable professional practice.
