DIRECTOR OF THE CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAM:
NYU’s distinguished Creative Writing Program is located the Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House at 58 West 10th Street, which has become a vibrant New York literary landmark known for its lively readings and salons. The Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House allows writers—established and emerging—to share their work in an inspiring setting. Students come to the house to attend workshops, craft classes, and special events. The beautiful reception floor, which features skylights and stained glass by 19th century master D. Maitland Armstrong, is an ideal setting for the intimate readings, literary salons, panel discussions, book parties, lectures, and seminars that are held in the house throughout the year.
Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative Writing
The M.F.A. in Creative Writing is designed to offer students an opportunity to concentrate more intensively on their writing and to choose, from a wider selection, those courses that will best help them develop as writers. The M.F.A. program does not have a foreign language requirement. This program is recommended for students who may want to apply for creative writing positions at colleges and universities, which often require the M.F.A. degree.
