The Program for Global Engagement at the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing focuses on providing fully funded international opportunities for students in the Master of Fine Arts program in Creative Writing. We are committed to exploring and engaging culture while providing creative writing opportunities around the world for our students. We provide support for them to teach abroad, to attend workshops, and to participate in international conferences.
