The Institute of American Indian Arts announce its first graduate program, the new Low Residency Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, which offers a professional degree in creative writing while allowing students to live at home. The program begins with a weeklong residency at the IAIA campus in Santa Fe where students and faculty mentors gather for workshops, classes, lectures, readings, and individual conferences.

In keeping with IAIA’s unique mission—“to empower creativity and leadership in Native arts and cultures through higher education, lifelong learning, and outreach”—most of the faculty mentors are American Indian and the literature studied in the program carries a distinct Native American emphasis. The program is open to everyone, but its focus aligns with IAIA’s unique mission.
