|tap| into the MFA


The |tap| MFA Public Database

Aims to be the most comprehensive database for those interested in researching about and applying to MFA in Creative Writing programs. Curated by |tap| literary magazine for accuracy, it can be edited by anyone who wishes to add information they have on a program. 

Institutional barriers are one of many that effect marginalized voices, and we hope this free and public database will help those wishing to use it during their MFA application period.

Information on MFA Creative Writing Programs gathered from Affording the MFA, The MFA Years, Poets & Writers, Individual Program Sites, and personal findings. For questions please email
