The clock is ticking! If you’ve been considering applying for the UBC MFA in Creative Writing, you’ve got just under a month before our deadline of January 9, 2017.

The faculty of Arts at UBC has a new interview with Annabel Lyon and Nancy Lee about their non-credit novel-writing course on edX.
The authors brought everything they’ve learned in their illustrious careers to a series of six-week non-credit online courses designed to take your novel from concept to completion. It was a unique teaching experience for both writers and gave would-be novel writers from around the world an opportunity to tap into their expertise and experience. The next edX session of “How to Write a Novel” starts on January 10, 2017 and is open for registration.
