"Established in 1980, American University's Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative Writing is dedicated to supporting the intensely personal act of creating literature that will illuminate and endure. Incoming students encounter an open, respectful community of writers and a curriculum that embraces the full range of writing experiences in the vibrant cultural and international capital of Washington, D.C. Through intensive workshops, seminars, and literature classes, teaching and internship experiences, and close contact with visiting writers, the MFA in creative writing program simultaneously challenges students to extend the possibilities of their craft and offers them a safe place to take risks as they develop a body of finished work."
