Red Earth MFA  
Write in the Middle of it All

It's Your Time

The Red Earth Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing at Oklahoma City University offers you the opportunity to escape your busy life to pursue your writing passions. Housed at a private university in an urban yet quiet setting, the program connects you with experienced creative and professional writers who will nurture your creative talent in workshops, peer groups, and individual instruction. The Red Earth MFA program gives you a chance to concentrate on your writing while working with like-minded communicators who, like you, wish to grow creatively and professionally in a collaborative environment.

Tailored Coursework

The Red Earth MFA is a low-residency Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing graduate studies program. Students will complete twelve hours of course work each fall and spring semester for two years, for a total of 48 hours that, along with the thesis, lead to the MFA in Creative Writing, a terminal degree in the field.

The low-residency model is suitable for both traditional and nontraditional students: you can keep your job and keep up with your family responsibilities while studying for your MFA.

If you’re considering The Red Earth MFA, we recommend that you read “Is a Low-Residency MFA Right for You?”, an article written by Lori A. May, one of our visiting writers and author of The Low-Residency MFA Handbook.
