All accepted applicants at the upcoming admission deadline will be considered for scholarship assistance based upon the quality of their creative writing. That’s good news: there’s no separate application for the scholarships!
The next deadline for admission to the SPU MFA is October 1, 2013.
Beth Myhr, an MFA alumna, said, “When I decided, after twenty years of writing, that it was time to go back to school, I looked for three things in a program: intellectual rigor, high standards for the art, and a program that would support what I consider a fact of art—that beautiful work is the soul of our culture. I needed a program that saw the spiritual practice in the writing process. The SPU MFA program was a perfect fit.”
