The MFA begins each academic year with a mini conference that enables graduate students to acquaint themselves with the MFA faculty as well as other writers invited to UW Bothell to participate in this event. Through this convergence of established writers and writing students, we intend to create an active community of writers and writing discussions that extend well beyond our academic setting and this initial gathering.
Learn more about the 2012 Fall Convergence that launched the UWB MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics here.
The academic year concludes with a spring festival meant to showcase faculty and student work. During this event, MFA degree candidates will read, show, and perform work from their thesis. Select guest writers will be invited in to provide commentary on UW Bothell creative writing and to share their own work.
