Acclaimed Faculty

Every track is led and designed by some of the very best writers and instructors working today.

Accessible & Affordable

The program is completely virtual, and every Zoom session is worked in consideration of each writer’s schedule. We often use payment plans with writers to make the $3297 tuition more accessible.

Lasting Community

Create deep bonds with a curated cohort of your peers as you learn, write, and workshop together.

Why Choose Pocket MFA?

  • This program is for the working writer who wants the learning results of an MFA program but cannot yet find the means or the time–at 12 weeks, with every meeting and interaction either through Zoom, inside our Learning Spaces, or over email, the Ready School seeks to be accessible by nearly anyone while maintaining the rigor of graduate-level learning.
  • Designed from the ground up to build relationships between writers, our learning tracks offer space to find the literary community that you’ll carry with you into your writing career.
  • Every cohort is full of students who commit ten hours a week to their learning. No one can leave the Pocket MFA without becoming a better, more productive writer.
  • Not just a generative program, every student will work 1-on-1 with an instructor to follow-through with their writing and to push forward their current writing project, whatever that might be.
