5 Things to Know About Our MFA Program:
You will find a creative home here, on a welcoming campus in a lush, private setting 30 minutes (one short train ride away) from New York City.
Graduate student housing makes your creative home a real home. If you choose to live here, you’ll save a bundle. Check the rents in NYC and Westchester, then get back to us. We think you’ll want to book a room.
Great writers are part of the experience. Edwidge Danticat, Tracy K. Smith, Jennifer Eagan, U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, and many others have joined us for recent events.
Great teachers shape your work. Our program faculty are excellent writers who are also excellent teachers. We believe the right teacher can transform aspirants into artists.
Our program is built on the principle that strong writers emerge from strong communities. Our students thrive in the community we’ve created; our alumni return to it, like family.
