MFA Creative Writing

Fiction | Creative Nonfiction | Poetry

Welcome to the Open House(s)

You're on this page, we presume, because you're trying to find out what our deal is and how things work at Hunter. And because we happen to think the best way to discover this is to hear from the people already in the program, who can give you actual rather than quasi-official or vaguely self-promoting answers, the first thing we do is invite you to our next Zoom Open House, Wednesday, October 19, at 8:00pm.

Register to receive the Zoom link when it's released.

And because we know you might not want to wait that long, the next thing we do is direct you to last year's open houses.

Whether you tune in now or later, you'll hear from current students what the program is really like. What will you learn? Are the students full of attitude? Are the professors? How is Hunter different? Can you get a degree and keep a job? Will you get the help you really need? Who will your professors be?

If you really want to nerd out, you can even watch the open houses from the year before last: Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Poetry.

Meantime, you probably want to know who's teaching and what their deals are, so here you can find out more about them.

So please join us for our Zoom Open House.

We look forward to getting to know you and reading your work. Then maybe we'll see you next year, in a real, in-person, Upper East Side classroom with your pen poised over a classmate's manuscript.

To get updates on applying to the Hunter MFA Program, please register. You'll receive our announcements, newsletter, and the Zoom Open House link too.
