We seek to help our students connect with this context artistically in whatever manner enhances their growth as writers and readers. Compounding the resources of the four participating universities—Cleveland State University, Kent State University, University of Akron, and Youngstown State University—the NEOMFA’s unique design enables students to engage with university presses, campus literary magazines, poetry centers, reading series, high-profile visiting writers as well as the regional community outside the university.
