Introduction

The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a low residency graduate program, which requires two weeks of residency every summer in Eastern Oregon and completing online courses and individualized study with MFA faculty the rest of the two-year curriculum.

In addition, the Wilderness, Ecology, and Community track connects students to the Pacific Northwest’s rich tradition of writers and thinkers with a deep and abiding connection to the land. In cooperation with EOU’s Outdoor Program and our partners at the Summer Fishtrap gathering, writing residencies and wilderness retreats will include visits and guest lectures by biologists, native plants specialists, staff from the Greater Hell’s Canyon Council, Signal Fire, Tamastlisk Institute of the Confederated tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Wallowology, and other local individuals and organizations.

The program provides students with meaningful, hands-on learning opportunities such as practica in professional editing and publishing with our award-winning literary magazines, basalt, and Oregon East and our affiliated presses Lynx House and Lost Horse. In doing so, our graduates develop creative skills that allow them to live more meaningful, productive lives in more prosperous, resilient communities.
