Literary Arts

Welcome to Literary Arts at Brown

For fifty years, Literary Arts at Brown University has been a creative and intellectual center for a diverse and innovative literary community. Along with a handful of other writing programs nationwide, Brown provides a home for  writers who are envisioning new paths in fiction, poetry, digital language arts, and mixed media. 

The online MFA application may be accessed starting around the middle of September; the deadline is 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time 15 December. No late applications will be considered and no changes/updates to applications or writing samples will be accepted.

The MFA application review process is underway. Decisions are anticipated by around the middle of March.
