Welcome to The Storyteller’s Inkpot

We are the faculty, alums, and students of The MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults Program (MFAC) program, from Hamline University’s Creative Writing Programs. Learn more about the program.

Our program is one of only a few in the country that focuses exclusively on writing for children and young adults and earns you a master of fine arts degree in just two years. We offer breadth and depth in multiple writing categories—picture book, early reader, middle-grade and young-adult fiction, poetry, nonfiction, graphic novel, and comics. You will be immersed in the process and craft of writing and supported by a community of accomplished authors, mentors, and colleagues. And you will graduate prepared to navigate the literary marketplace.
