University of Arkansas at Fayetteville
Established in 1966, this school offers an MFA in Writing and an MFA in Translation. Students also have the benefit of biannual visits by guest writers who give readings, teach workshops, and offer individual attention to student work. The summer of 2002 marked the twelfth anniversary of the International Writers' Course in Creative Writing, which they conduct in association with the National University of Ireland, Galway. All MFA students have the opportunity to participate in the Writers In the Schools (WITS) program (see above).
