Pratt Institute

New york, united states.

The Pratt M.F.A. in Writing is a two-year program that offers contemporary writers the tools and the support they need to build a practice that is responsive to our rapidly evolving environmental and political times.

Our approach to the M.F.A. curriculum favors collective critique sessions similar to the art-school studio model (where core faculty, guest artists, and peers working in multiple genres, all engage in weekly discussions and presentations of student work). Additionally, students take part in one-on-one guided mentorships, develop fieldwork projects that seek to open their writing practices to the world, and participate in seminars that offer numerous fields of intellectual and creative inquiry:  Literature, Media Studies, Performance, Experimental Practices, Activism, and Critical Theory, to name a few.

In this program, students work in a variety of mediums, lineages and forms, including fiction and poetry, performance, non-fiction, translation, cultural criticism, investigative journalism, documentary, digital media, image/text and visual practices. We encourage collaboration and the exploration of hybrid approaches to writing as a set of interactive processes that can potentially generate new and transformative social spaces.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Writing +

In most writing programs, students must complete two years of liberal arts requirements before they are allowed to begin writing. At Pratt, writing majors start writing on the first day of freshman year and continue for the next four years, completing a book-length work of poetry, fiction or creative nonfiction as a senior thesis. In other words, they learn by doing and by having their efforts rigorously responded to in critiques by hard-working peers and inspired, accomplished instructors.

Along the way, writing majors read widely and deeply in contemporary and classical literatures; they study literary and media theory, science and math, grammar and logic. But the primary focus is on writing, and the curriculum flows outward from and is fueled by writing as the chief activity. Beyond the writing studios that form the core of the curriculum are more specialized, tutorial-sized courses such as The Book as Compositional Form, How to Break into Journalism, Screenplay Writing, Blogging, The Graphic Novel, Crime Writing, Bending Genre, and Experimental Fiction.

The writing program also takes full advantage of the fact that it is located in New York City, arguably the publishing capital of the world, and in Brooklyn, the borough now most densely populated with writers and artists. New York City provides brilliant faculty, an endless stream of famous writers who come to campus to read from their work or serve as Writers-in-Residence, and a host of internship opportunities at institutions ranging from St. Mark’s Poetry Project to Saturday Night Live.

Minor / Concentration in Creative Writing +

The Creative Writing Minor is designed for Pratt students who seek to deepen their commitment to the composition of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction. The core of the minor consists of admission into Writing Studios (of which a student must take at least two),Special Topics classes, and Writers’ Forum. The minimum number of credits required for the minor is 15.

Students entering the Minor in Creative Writing will begin the studio sequence according to their individual skill levels, which will be assessed via their submitted portfolios.

Master of Fine Arts in Writing +

Graduate program director.

The Graduate Program in Writing M.F.A. consists of several core classes and seminars taken over four semesters (two years), with the goal of producing a final manuscript, performance, or collaborative event.

Notable features of the Pratt M.F.A. in Writing include:

A weekly collective interdisciplinary critique forum

One-on-one guided Mentorships.

Guided Fieldwork Residencies in a wide array of occupational domains, local communities, and institutions that focus on social and environmental justice, media interventions, education, science, health and human services, institutional or vernacular archives, animal rights, and local and global activism.

Special Topics Seminars in Literature, Media Studies, Performance, and Experimental, Collaborative, and Engaged Writing traditions.
