The UNO Creative Writing Workshop (CWW) is our resident graduate program in fiction writing, nonfiction writing, poetry writing, play writing and screen writing. Its curriculum requires forty-five credits of graduate work, culminating in a creative thesis and leading to the MFA degree.

The CWW has a long relationship with the Festival, providing round one readers for our writing contests and a graduate student to serve as our contest coordinator and program assistant.
