EN 599 - Thesis

Credits: 1-6

The thesis is designed as the terminal creative project for the Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing. Students will produce a publishable book-length manuscript in their primary genre or a combination of genres, as agreed upon with the thesis director and committee. The collection may include 50-80 pages of poetry, 150-200 pages of short fiction or nonfiction, 200-350 pages of a novel of full-length book of creative nonfiction, or a collection of one-act plays, or one or more full-length plays in three to five acts. If a student chooses a combination of genres, this may be presented as one book-length collection of related works in multiple genres or as individual chapbooks. The page ranges listed are meant as a guide. Acutal thesis lengths will be determined by the thesis committee. Besides the final written manuscript, each thesis project will include a public performance and a thesis defense. The thesis is repeatable for up to 6 hours of credit toward the degree.
