The SNHU MFA is a two-year, low-residency program that allows students to live anywhere and work a full-time job. The program never allows the number of students to exceed 65, so students develop close and sustaining relationships with faculty during the intensive weeklong residencies in June and January. During the rest of the year students work with faculty one-on-one, receiving thorough, regular editorial letters supplemented with phone calls.
