Faculty

The resident faculty at the MFA Writing Program in Greensboro are not only award-winning writers, but also committed teachers who have spent their careers mentoring young writers. Each year the faculty also invites writers and editors to visit the campus for readings, workshops, and master classes with MFA students. They bring unique voices and a variety of experience to the writing community. Guests have included winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Pulitzer Prize, the MacArthur ‘Genius’ grant, the National Book Award, the Rome Prize, and the PEN/Hemingway Award, among other honors.
