Converse draws energy for its MFA in Creative Writing program from the College’s long history of inspiring and developing award-winning undergraduate and graduate writers, such as Julia Peterkin, the only South Carolinian to win the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. During 2016 students and recent graduates have published or had accepted for publication eight books with major NY publishers and acclaimed independent presses, plus they have been honored as Georgia Author of the Year, nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and received a number of individual writing awards.

At the end of the semester prior to the semester of graduation, each graduating student will consult with the respective thesis advisor about the shape and length of the manuscript, and the expectations set at this meeting must be fulfilled.  By the start of the semester in which the student will graduate, s/he should choose the other two or three members of the thesis committee and should plan to submit the thesis to all members of that committee a minimum of two weeks before the defense.  Each semester, the Program Office will post the date by which the final draft must be electronically submitted to the Registrar's office, along with the deadlines for the forms that must be submitted prior to the thesis defense. 

Students work one-on-one with their professors during the course of seven quarters of online study and five concentrated 10-day residencies at the beautiful Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa , just minutes from Palm Springs, CA. We recommend that you visit our residency page to see our most recent guest faculty line-up, as well as to get a flavor for what you can expect from a typical residency week — it’s a jam packed time, but also, we think, the best time of the year! During the final thesis residency, all students have their thesis manuscripts read by agents, producers and publishers. Visit our blog for up-to-date news, events and updates. And please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have or to set-up a residency visit.

As noted above, all UW graduate students must complete the required university forms and pay the required university fees in order to formally graduate. These forms and fees are required and processed by the Registrar's office, not the MFA program. We'll help you navigate the process as best we can, but students should keep track of all forms and fees themselves by communicating directly with the Registrar's office and by visiting the Graduate Education site and the Registrar’s Graduate Student Graduation page for the most up-to-date graduation information. Students who do not intend to walk at graduation must still pay any required diploma and uploading fees and must meet all university deadlines.
