The University of Kentucky is proud to offer a two-year MFA in Creative Writing. Situated in historic Lexington and surrounded by the splendor of thoroughbred horse farms and bourbon distilleries, The University enjoys a rich literary heritage dating back to 1947, when Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist A.B. Guthrie first offered courses in fiction. The Department of English is delighted to build upon that rich history by offering students access to a diverse faculty in fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction, and, in most cases, extensive teaching experience, full tuition remission, and competitive stipends. The MFA in Creative Writing is a two-year program with a flexible and interdisciplinary approach, combining a studio/research curriculum. The UK MFA in Creative Writing places equal emphasis on fostering the artistic process of the MFA student, as well as his or her literary study and related creative or scholarly work.
