University of King's College
MFA Program in Creative Nonfiction
The two-year MFA program in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is the first of its kind in Canada. Focused solely on creative nonfiction, the program is offered on a low-residency model with summer and winter residencies. Through the fall and winter terms, students work one-on-one with their mentors. In the summer, students, mentors, and faculty gather at the King's campus for ten full days. Students participate in everything from workshops and one-on-one meetings with their mentors to readings, discussions, panels, and talks by faculty, mentors, and guests. It's a rich, busy, full time. In 2020 all this was translated to an online format. While there's nothing to replace being together in a tangible way, somehow—remarkably—much of the good feeling of sharing thoughts and time with fellow lovers of nonfiction made it through the screens and into our respective homes.
So many places to go for help. Here are a few of my favourites:
