Writing Popular Fiction (M.F.A.)
An online program supported by intensive on-campus writers' residencies.
This one-of-a-kind program teaches writers to create – and market – the fiction that sells. It is designed for those authors who wish to write within the popular fiction genres such as romance, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mystery in the adult, children’s or young adult markets.
Seton Hill has designed a flexible online/intensive-residency format that allows you to earn a master of fine arts degree while working full-time or caring for a family.
Every residency, you will have the opportunity to meet with published authors (past guests of the program have included Orson Scott Card, Nancy Kress, David Morrell, Walter Sorrells, Shirley Hailstock, Tess Gerritsen, Jack Gantos, Octavia Butler, Bruce Hale, Catherine Asaro, Jonathan Maberry Christopher Paul Curtis) in addition to agents and editors.
