Description: The M.F.A. program in Creative Writing gives promising fiction writers and poets an opportunity to study and practice their art with dedicated fellow writers. For three decades, one of the prime strengths of our program has been the excellence of our students. The strictly limited enrollment, with six poets and six fiction writers admitted each year, guarantees that students work closely together with a faculty that includes four fiction writers and four poets of national acclaim. Students are selected on the basis of academic credentials and writing samples. All students are fully funded for the duration of their degree. High admission standards and small class size insure that students' writing receives thorough, consistent attention from faculty and fellow students. The Raymond Carver Reading Series brings poets and prose writers to Syracuse University to give readings to a mixed audience of university students, faculty, and residents of the local community. Readings are held on select Wednesdays at 5:45 PM in Gifford Auditorium on the Syracuse University campus. The readings are free. Recent readers in the series include Terrance Hayes, Amy Hempel, Sam Lipsyte, Tobias Wolff, Brigit Pegeen Kelly, Lucille Clifton, Sharon Olds, and Denis Johnson.
