MFA in Creative Writing
Situated in historic Lexington and surrounded by the awesomeness of thoroughbred horse farms and bourbon distilleries, the University enjoys a rich literary heritage dating back to 1947, when Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist A.B. Guthrie first offered courses in fiction. Graduates of the English Department include Bobbie Ann Mason, Rebecca Gayle Howell, Wendell Berry, Kayla Rae Whitaker, Patrick O’Keefe, Holly Goddard Jones, and James Baker Hall. The UK MFA Program in Creative Writing is the proud home of Erik Reece's Ekphrastic Craft class, the Creating Writing Residency at the Mill House, New Limestone Review, and eight fully funded TAships.
