Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program

Our unique consortium enables students to take classes on four different campuses: Cleveland State University, Kent State University, The University of Akron, and Youngstown State University, while being part of one unified writing program. Our writers have access to four times the resources, and four times the faculty members, as well as a diverse and lively student body that welcomes newcomers from all walks of life. Since its inception in 2005, the NEOMFA has offered small-group workshops, open readings, summer travel fellowships, and high-profile visiting writers, in addition to career-preparing internships, competitive graduate funding, and a diverse Midwestern landscape that tempts the creative eye.
