Established in 1994, the CalArts MFA Writing Program offers a two year immersion in an informed creative practice that includes vibrant conversation among poets, scholars, fiction writers, translators, essayists and others. Our presence within an institute dedicated to experimental art making provides a context for new, often hybrid genres. Teaching fellowships and editorial internships are available.
CalArts, the first U.S. higher educational institution to integrate the visual and performing arts under one roof, is recognized as the nation’s leading laboratory for the arts. Housing six schools-Art, Critical Studies, Dance, Film/Video, Music and Theater-CalArts embraces creative cross-pollination among diverse art forms and traditions and strongly encourages each artist to pursue his or her vision within a broad context of social and cultural understanding.
