Our award-winning faculty (Christopher Coake, David Anthony Durham, Steve Gehrke, Sarah (S.M.) Hulse, Ann Keniston and Gailmarie Pahmeier) publish fiction and poetry nationally and internationally, across a range of genres and styles - but we are also accessible, committed to mentorship and the fostering of a program that supports and encourages its students.
