About

The University of Wyoming Creative Writing Program helps aspiring writers tell their stories and in turn contributes to the story of Wyoming.

At UW, we consider prose a full-time commitment. In fact, we are one of the few universities that devotes its fully funded MFA program entirely to prose. We teach a wide range of courses in fiction, nonfiction, and hybrid forms, and we offer award-winning faculty who write novels and story collections, public dialogues, and philosophical meditations. We prepare our graduates to release books with prominent commercial and small-press publishers and to bring their prose passions to writing for scientific communities, for public radio, for political campaigns, and much more. 

Our flexible degree requirements allow students to tailor their pursuits to their personal interests and career goals, and we encourage students to pursue simultaneous joint degrees in a variety of fields—from American Indian studies, to English literature, to gender and women's studies, to environmental and natural resources, to geology, and much more.

The Giving Day campaign for Creative Writing will offer support and encouragement to MFA and other creative writing students to develop videos explaining why they chose to study creative writing at UW. Participants will compete for prizes, including a pizza party, sweatshirts, and other prizes. Our goal is to get the word out to our donors about why UW is such a great place to be a writer.

Thank you for being an important member of our program!
