Mile-High MFA

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mile-High MFA is a two-year terminal degree that provides students with one-on-one instruction in fiction, young- adult fiction, creative nonfiction, writing for performance, poetry, or the graphic novel, along with theory and craft lessons, workshops, seminars, and readings by accomplished authors, as well as guidance on the practical and professional aspects of writing. The Mile-High MFA is not for casual writers who see writing as a hobby. It is for writers who are ready to take themselves seriously and fully engage in writing as a vocation.
