Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA in Writing Program
Established in 1981, the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA in Writing Program was one of the first low-residency programs in the country. At each MFA in Writing residency, a renowned poetry or prose writer joins the program for a substantial portion of the residency. The author gives a reading and/or talk, meets with numerous students individually, and is available in many informal ways throughout the residency to interact with students. The College publishes Hunger Mountain: the VCFA Journal of the Arts and writers may choose to attend a summer residency in Slovenia, in lieu of Vermont.
