A guide for those pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing (MFA), and for undergraduates working on creative writing projects

UT MFA in Creative Writing

The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at the University of Tampa is a low-residency program for writers practicing poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. The program requires students to complete a 25-page critical essay, an annotated bibliography, a seminar on a selected topic, and a substantial thesis project in their discipline. The Macdonald-Kelce Library is a helpful resource for MFA students as they work on these projects.

Get Books by Using Interlibrary Loan

University of Tampa MFA students have access to books during their residency and in the interim. The loan period for MFA students is six weeks.

Check out a book at the Circulation Desk with your Student ID if you are on campus.

If you are not on campus, please contact Teresa Brown at tbrown@ut.edu to have a book from the collection mailed to you. Return postage will be included.

Need a book that isn't in our collection? Using your local library is likely the most efficient method. However, you may request a book through UT's Interlibrary Loan and have it mailed to you. Please acknowledge that there may be increased delays in this process due to shipping and library due dates.

Ask a librarian if you have any questions!
