Creative Writing

Master of Fine Arts
Degree Overview

Stories are inherent in all of us; in every culture, and in every aspect of human connection. They are how we chronicle our time on earth, and how we make sense of a world that doesn’t always adhere to our expectations.

In Full Sail’s Creative Writing MFA program, you’ll take your passion for storytelling to the next level by incorporating visual elements into your writing process. You’ll explore a variety of narrative structures while writing across mediums and genres, and focus on creating characters that resonate with an audience.
