WHAT IS THE NEOMFA?

The Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts (NEOMFA) is a unique, consortial graduate program that offers a terminal degree in Creative Writing.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to educate and inspire promising creative writers, while giving them the time and opportunity to develop their writing in a challenging and supportive environment. Located in the industrial Midwest, a rapidly changing and evolving part of the country, rich with history, imagery and stories, we seek to help our students connect with this context artistically in whatever manner enhances their growth as writers and readers.
