FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 1 application deadline for Spalding MFA in Writing’s fall semester
Louisville, KY, June 28, 2017—August 1 marks the application deadline for the fall semester of Spalding University’s low-residency Master of Fine Arts in Writing. The nationally recognized Top 10 MFA program offers fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, writing for children and young adults, screenwriting, and playwriting. The four-semester program is designed for writers ready to carve out time for creative pursuits. A post-baccalaureate certificate in creative writing, equal to one semester in the program, is also available.
The fall semester begins November 10-19 with an intensive 10-day residency on Spalding’s campus in Louisville. Students and faculty come together for workshops, lectures, readings, and other learning experiences. After residency, students return home for an independent study session of intensely focused one-on-one instruction with a member of the program’s outstanding faculty.
The low-residency model makes graduate study possible for students with full-time jobs and substantial family commitments, and it allows them to build writing into their daily lives. Spalding MFA alumni include national award-winners in every genre.

Three of our poetry alums, Jill Kelly Koren, Troy Alvey, and Angela Elles, from Spalding's MFA in Writing Program somehow landed together at Ivy Tech Madison, Indiana. They are all fabulous poets--I'm so proud of them and their work--but I'm also proud of the teachers they've become. I was happy to meet about 100 of their lucky students (who had all been assigned my books to read) when invited to read there last month. Lucky them? Lucky me!
