The New England College MFA Low Residency Program in Poetry offers a
rigorous yet innovative focus on poetry taught by an outstanding faculty
dedicated to mentoring each student according to their interests and
Now in our tenth year, we are a diverse community of poets working together in a collegial program that recognizes the importance of close listening, critical acumen, respectful response, and what Marianne Moore called “a place for the genuine.”
More than a graduate course of study, the New England College MFA program strives to teach its students how to become better poets by providing a trans-formative experience in the study of creative writing and poetry that will enhance their professional goals. The distinguishing features of our program include a single genre focus on poetry, as well as specialized study in memorization and recitation, collaborative performance, translation, new media poetics, prose writing for poets and teaching opportunities. By combining short-term residencies with semester long regimens of faculty-student correspondence, the program is designed to help students develop strong poetic and critical skills, as well as to take bold risks in their writing.
We encourage all individuals interested in applying to the Master in Poetry fine arts program to contact the directors to discuss the program, financial aid options, and other important details.
A limited number of participants who are qualified to do graduate-level work may attend the MFA residency as non-matriculated. Acceptance into the residency does not guarantee acceptance into the MFA program in Poetry at New England College.
