The MFA Program in Writing at California College of the Arts has helped copious alumni further their knowledge and appreciation for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, creative nonfiction, playwriting, screenwriting, historical fiction, graphic novel writing, and many other literary genres.
Making Art That Matters
Alumni have gone on become established and respected poets, novelists, essayists, journalists, teachers, mentors, to name just a few career paths that foster a greater sense of community building and allow talented young writers to express their views in productive and inspirational ways.
And CCA is the foundation from which such meaningful careers were built.
Our graduates are winning highly competitive awards, writing novels, having their poems and short stories included in prestigious anthologies, and connecting themselves and their ideas and imaginations to the world around them.
