NEOMFA: NorthEast Ohio Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing

The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is offered as part of NEOMFA, a four-university consortium incorporating Cleveland State University, Kent State University, Youngstown State University, and the University of Akron.

Important Notice

The Michael Schwartz Library is now open. Physical items from our collection, OhioLINK, and Interlibrary Loan are available once again. But you can still make use of our robust online options for ebooks, articles, and videos. For more information, visit our page on Remote/Off Campus Access to Library Resources.
