About the MFA:

Founded in 2008, Drew University’s Master of Fine Arts in Poetry program combines the benefits of an award-winning faculty with the conveniences of a low-residency schedule. For two weeks each year, students come to campus for intensive study with our faculty of poets whose published works have received some of the world’s most prestigious distinctions. Throughout the remainder of the year, students complete their studies remotely, receiving regular guidance and feedback from the same faculty mentors. These luminaries include Gerald Stern, who was recently inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and Jean Valentine, who served as poet laureate for the State of New York from 2008 to 2010.
