Our MFA Program, located on the most richly diverse
undergraduate campus in the nation, a mere PATH train ride from Manhattan,
is both cutting edge and deeply important. Literature comprises the
consciousness and conscience of a culture, and our MFA for the 21st Century
is designed to nurture many voices. Click here to read about MFA Faculty/Student Honors and Publications.
We invite you, writers from diverse backgrounds and cultures, students whose
excellence as writers will enrich Rutgers-Newark and the Newark community,
to join us in this unique program.
Please peruse our ideas. We accept applications beginning on November 1, 2011 and have a deadline of January 10, 2012. Prompt applications give us more time to review your work, so please try to have your work in as early as possible. We encourage you to apply
with a strong, competitive manuscript and the dedication required by your
craft and your calling.
