Our three-year MFA program, directed by Jeanne Marie Laskas, offers tracks in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Pitt’s MFA program also supports a digital literary journal, Hot Metal Bridge, edited by its graduate students; hosts a weekly graduate student reading series, SpeakEasy; and welcomes numerous visiting writers through the Pittsburgh Contemporary Writers Series. We are particularly proud of our partnership with - a site that recommends the best longform narrative journalism. Since the partnership began, MFA students have held editorial and podcasting internships with the site, and the co-founders recorded a live podcast with New York Times editor Joel Lovell that has been listened to nearly 30,000 times. This is just one of the many ways Pitt embraces and supports innovative writing.
