The Creative Writing Program at Indiana University in Bloomington offers a Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree in fiction and poetry. The M.F.A. is a three-year, 60 credit hour program designed as a terminal degree for the student whose goal is a career as a professional writer or teacher of creative writing at the college level. It requires a creative thesis and is characterized by small classes, informal creative writing workshops, and close contact with fellow students and faculty.

Prospective applicants will find detailed information and e-mail links to our program director and secretary on Admissions. A description of our teaching package along with a profile of our director of creative writing pedagogy is on the A.I. Teaching Support page. A list of support services and programs for students from under-represented populations can be found on Diversity Resources. Information about our student-edited literary journal, Indiana Review, and our summer writers' conference is included in Additional Opportunities. Other links offer a general history of our program, course lists, profiles of our faculty and students, details about fellowships and awards, program and alumni news, a list of published and forthcoming books by our graduates, and a calendar of annual readings on the Bloomington campus. Finally, a linked site index is offered to help readers better navigate these pages.
