The John Hopkins University based in Baltimore, Maryland offers a two years fully funded MFA in fiction and poetry. This MFA in writing is designed for students committed to the study and practice of literary writing at the highest level of accomplishment. MFA students work with nationally and internationally known faculty members to complete intensive literary seminars, small workshops, a first-year portfolio, and a second-year thesis. All students receive full tuition, health insurance, and a generous teaching fellowship, currently set at $30,500 per year. Some students work as assistant editors on The Hopkins Review.
