WV Wesleyan’s low-residency MFA is an uncommonly affordable program offering tracks in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Students join a warm community every summer and winter for an intensive ten-day residency on campus that initiates an independent semester of apprenticeship through correspondence. Faculty-mentor/student ratio never exceeds 1 to 4. Located in central Appalachia, the program welcomes and fosters writing that explores place and identity. Wesleyan also offers cross-genre study and Ireland Residency options.
