The MFA program at Washington University, St. Louis is currently taking applications for its new creative nonfiction track, with an initial acceptance of two students for fall 2015, with two more added in 2016. The program is tuition-free, with a livable [$21,150] fellowship stipend and 1/1 teaching the second year (no teaching the first year). Students will work with WU’s nonfiction faculty Kathleen Finneran and Edward McPherson and with two Visiting Hurst Professors annually . Nonfiction writers who have been recent visitors to the MFA program include Patricia Hampl, Jo Ann Beard, Amy Leach, Cheryl Strayed, Nick Flynn, and Nick Reding.
