An exceptional low-residency writing program in the Pacific Northwest Pacific’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing program celebrates writing as an art that has the potential to make a difference in the world. In a rigorous course of study and with an emphasis on the creative process, award-winning writers work closely with students to support and inspire emerging craft and voice. Students create a quality portfolio of fiction, nonfiction or poetry, reflecting their unique styles and forms of expression. Each semester in the program begins with a 10-day residency where the students and faculty gather for workshops, craft talks, classes, panels, and readings.
Every semester in the MFA program begins with a 10-day residency at the Oregon coast (winter) or at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon (summer).

The next residency will be held on campus in Forest Grove, Oregon, from June 20-30, 2013.

AULA’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing was named one of the top five low-residency MFA programs in the country by The Atlantic magazine. In AULA’s unique low-residency program, students explore the important role of the writer in society, reading works by diverse and socially-conscious authors. The MFA in Creative Writing program is comprised of on-campus residencies – which include classes, readings, and workshops – complemented by a five month online project period during which students live and write in their home communities.

Authorized by the Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board, WWW MFA classes began in August of 2005. In August of 2007 the Workshop celebrated its first graduation.
