Toronto meet-and-greet for prospective MFA students

September 15, 2016

IMG_4265Would you like to learn more about Canada’s only Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction degree program? The MFA in Creative Nonfiction — a two-year limited-residency program offered jointly by Halifax’s Dalhousie University and the University of King’s College — allows students to combine short, intense residencies in Halifax, Toronto and New York with ongoing one-to-one mentoring with professional nonfiction writers and teachers. At the end of two years, students graduate with a degree, a polished book proposal, and a substantial portion of a finished manuscript.

The program is still relatively new — we only graduated our second class in May 2016 — but seven of our graduates already have book contracts! And more will soon.


In November, we’ll be staging our annual meet-and-greet for prospective students in Toronto. (Details below.) It will be an opportunity to meet and talk informally with the program’s faculty, mentors, students and alumni, as well as with members of our national advisory board, who include editors at major international book publishers, and award-winning authors and journalists.

The program is now accepting applications for the 2017-18 academic year. Classes begin July 30, 2017 in Halifax. For more information or to apply, click here.
