UCF’s MFA in Creative Writing offers a diverse curriculum to support a vibrant community of writers. We offer concentrations in fiction, poetry, and literary nonfiction, and features a curriculum fueled by aesthetic values and focused on students’ original creative work.


Set within the growing and bustling 60,000+ campus, on the eastern edge of Orlando and about equi-distant from Disney World and the Atlantic beaches, the MFA program offers a balance of close community and the openness of city life. The program—running between about 25 and 35 full- and part-time students at a time—reflects the diversity of the region.
