The MFA Years

The MFA Years followed the experiences of first-, second-, and third-year creative writing MFA candidates in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, along with a couple post-grads, PhDs, and writers of less traditional genres. Much of the inspiration for the website stemmed from The MFA Chronicles, a blog that ended in 2011.

MFA Years contributors discussed their experiences adjusting to graduate school and the creative writing MFA. The blog also featured guest posts from current, past, and future creative writing students. See the archives below.
