Short description: 

For over 40 years, the Brown University Program in Literary Arts has been a creative and intellectual center for the U.S. literary avant-garde. Along with only a handful of other writing programs nationwide, Brown’s Program in Literary Arts provides a home for innovative writers of fiction, poetry, electronic writing (hypertext) and mixed media.

Established in the mid-1960s by poet, translator and critic Edwin Honig, the Program in Literary Arts continues its tradition of hiring and retaining a faculty comprised of nationally and internationally known authors. Each year, the program offers 60 – 70 classes, awards the M.F.A. degree to approximately 12 graduate student writers, and confers Honors or Capstone certificates on about 35 talented undergraduate writers. In spring, 2005, the Program also established, for the first time, an undergraduate concentration in Literary Arts.
