In Fairfield University’s low-residency MFA in Creative Writing students can pursue the study of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and screenwriting. Within these genres, one can pursue concentrations in publishing/editing, spiritual writing, or literary health and healing. Students gather for the convenient semiannual residencies on beautiful Enders Island in Mystic, Connecticut. While highly rigorous, the program can be tailored to suit individual writing goals, and allow participants to learn from a faculty composed of nationally recognized writers. In recent years, our alumni and students have published over 80 books, in addition to hundreds of articles, essays, stories, and poems.
