The low-residency M.F.A. program at Queens involves four semesters of coursework, each of which includes a seven-day on-campus residency and — in the periods between residencies — an on-line workshop where you share your writing with three or four other students and your faculty mentor for that semester. Faculty members include Cathy Smith Bowers, Bob Hicock, Cathy Park Hong, Sally Keith, Sebastian Matthews, Rebecca McClanahan, James McKean, Alan Michael Parker, John Pineda, Robert Polito, and Claudia Rankine.
