Low-Residency (or Summer Study) MFA and MA Programs

For three years (2004-07) I maintained (and routinely updated) a "Primer on Low-Residency MFA Programs," which was for sale online. This summer I made the guide freely available (you can find it through Friday, August 31, here). At the end of this month, however, I will retire that text from circulation.

A portion of the primer was devoted to listing current low-residency MFA programs for writers. While I won't provide full contact information or details about any of the programs here on this page, I will do my best to keep it current (with working links) and complete. Please leave a comment if you have any problems with the links and/or know of programs to add.

I hope this list will be a useful resource to writers looking for low-residency (or summer study) graduate programs in creative writing.
