The NewPages Guide to
Creative Writing Programs

A directory of graduate writing programs in the U.S. and Canada



Guide to Creative Writing Programs CoverThis guide is meant to be a starting point to help prospective students find schools, or better yet, the school that will be their best match. It is a place to begin researching which schools seem most interesting—based on any number of factors: genre, type of program, length of program, costs, approaches, faculty, and many other criteria. It is being printed and sent to schools all over the country. Print copies will also be available for free at the NewPages tables at AWP 2014 in Seattle.


We recommend using it alongside our truly-meant-to-be exhaustive online guide to creative writing programs, which includes separate listings for both graduate and undergraduate programs:
