The University of Massachusetts MFA Program, one of the nation's oldest and finest creative writing programs, invites you to the beautiful Pioneer Valley for a week of intensive writing workshops, readings, craft sessions, Q&As, and manuscript consultations.

Overall, this is the best experience I have had in a writing community.

I needed the week to be reminded of the joy of writing and the joy of talking about writing. More than any of the new ideas I came away with, this was the most important thing the Institute gave me.
