Students get their M.F.A. in three to five six-week summer sessions. You’ll work with visiting professional faculty, artists-in-residence, and guest speakers, developing personal and professional relationships. This can lead to reading and production credits before graduation.
The Playwright’s Lab features two professional certificate training programs that model best practices. These programs focus on the special skills required to work on new plays in production. They also pair playwrights with actors and directors in dynamic collaborations.

[We’d like to introduce] our MFA program in Creative Writing and Writing for the Performing Arts here at the University of California, Riverside.
We’re a two-year MFA program offering study in screenwriting, playwriting, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Our goal is to fully fund all of our students for both years in the program through a combination of fellowships and teaching assistantships.
Some of our faculty include: Jane Smiley, Susan Straight, Katie Ford, Reza Aslan, Laila Lalami, Tom Lutz, Stu Krieger, Allison Hedge Coke, and Rickerby Hinds, among many others.
