NewPages Guide to Creative Writing Programs :: PDF Edition

Cover 2018This 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: genres, type of program, length of program, costs, approaches, faculty, and many other criteria.

Every year the guide is printed and mailed to schools across the country and is handed out at the NewPages table or booth at the AWP Conference and Bookfair.

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:
