Join us on Wednesday, August 1st from 12 Noon - 1 p.m. EST to learn more about the programs and have your questions answered by a Drexel representative.



You need a program that’s as passionate about your writing as you are. Drexel University’s low-residency, two-year MFA in Creative Writing helps you grow as a writer in a supportive creative community – while letting you complete most of the career-focused curriculum online through workshops, reading tutorials, and one-on-one packet exchanges with notable published writers.

You'll specialize in fiction writing and take electives in areas such as young adult, historical fiction, and marketing for authors.

Drexel University is closely monitoring external events and will post updates if changes should occur to the MFA in Creative Writing’s in-person residencies or teaching assistantships. The Drexel MFA course of study is fully adaptable to remote-learning.

Increase your civic engagement

Use storytelling to affect change, build community, and widen opportunities for expression in marginalized populations through elective study abroad experiences like the Haiti Creative Writing Intensive and our one-of-a-kind Drexel Story Medicine Collaborative. You may also work with military veterans, incarcerated men and women, and hospice patients.

Gain real-world insight

The program includes three in-person residencies where you'll meet with classmates, professors, and authors of distinction. Two residencies take place in Philadelphia and the third takes place in New York so you can meet and network with additional industry professionals.

Learn to lead by example

Drexel's MFA provides the opportunity for select students to enter our teaching pedagogy track.  MFA teaching assistantships help you gain experience (and a salary!) you can put toward your degree.
