Welcome to Literary Arts at Brown
For over 40 years, Literary Arts at Brown University has been a creative and intellectual center for the U.S. literary avant-garde. Along with a handful of other writing programs nationwide, Brown provides a home for innovative writers of fiction, poetry, digital language arts, and mixed media.
The online MFA application may be accessed starting in early September; the deadline is 15 December. No late applications will be considered and no changes/updates to applications or writing samples will be accepted. Letters of reference and TOEFL scores may arrive after the deadline; we recommend that they arrive no later than 15 January.
