Portland State University's MFA in Creative Writing offers concentrations in Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry.

Located in the center of one of the country's most vibrantly literary cities, the Creative Writing MFA at Portland State University provides writers with opportunities for creative development with a core faculty of prominent authors: Diana Abu-Jaber, Charles D'Ambrosio, A.B. Paulson, and Leni Zumas in Fiction; John Beer and Michele Glazer in Poetry; and Paul Collins and Michael McGregor in Nonfiction.

Our two-year degree emphasizes workshops and close mentorship by core faculty, while also offering the flexibility of a part-time option and the rich course offerings of Oregon's largest university. MFA students also work with acclaimed visiting and resident writers though our partnership with Tin House, including our 2012-13 writers Joanna Klink and Maggie Nelson.

MFA program alumni have written for publications ranging from Tin House and the New Yorker to The Believer and Iowa Review. But above all, our program is part of Portland: long after graduating, many students stay on to make this city of Powell's and Wordstock their home.
