The Creative Writing Programs (CWP) in the College of Liberal Arts offer a deep immersion in the process and craft of creative writing taught by award-winning practicing writers. The college offers two graduate degree options: the master of fine arts in writing (MFA), and the low-residency master of fine arts in writing for children and young adults (MFAC).  These degrees prepare students who wish to specialize in creative writing and to teach writing at the college level. The MFA is offered full- or part-time; provides depth and breadth in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction; and offers interdisciplinary electives. The MFAC is one of only a few programs in the country that focuses exclusively on writing for young readers. Students can complete this program in just over two years.  The Creative Writing Programs in the CLA house all creative writing at the university, including the bachelor of fine arts (BFA) degree. They also publish Water~Stone Review, an award-winning national literary magazine.
