Harness your passion for storytelling with SNHU's Mountainview Low-Residency MFA in Fiction and Nonfiction. In this small, two-year creative writing program, students work one-on-one with our distinguished faculty remotely for most of the semester but convene for weeklong intensive residencies in June and January. At residencies, students critique each other's work face-to-face, meet with major authors, agents and editors and learn how to teach at the college level.

Our Mountainview Low-Residency MFA is an affordable, accredited, innovative program whose alumni have placed novels and nonfiction with publishing houses and magazines including:

  • Viking
  • HarperCollins
  • Farrar, Straus and Giroux
  • and worked as professors, journalists and editors.

You'll find a community of committed writers at our twice-annual residencies at the Mountain View Grand Resort in Whitefield, New Hampshire (pictured above).
