Official MFA Rankings in Creative Writing

The purpose of this blog is to provide information for prospective graduate students in creative writing. To date, there have only been two “official” rankings of graduate programs in creative writing, one conducted by US News & World Report in 1997 and one conducted by The Atlantic Monthly in 2007. Although there are many other “unofficial” rankings out there, these are the only two that have been endorsed by major media outlets. The goal of this blog is not to endorse these rankings, but simply to provide a starting point for prospective students who are interested in studying creative writing on the graduate level. Finally, this is not a forum for discussion and debate. This blog exists solely for informational purposes.
