Advanced Revision Techniques in Fiction Students use their own writing to hone specialized revision skills such as deep characterization, lyrical writing, expanding scenes, movement through time, and developing a sense of place.
Degree candidates set their own pace to earn a 9-course MA in two to five years, with accelerated and extended options available. The course also introduces students to the workshop process.
MICA students also have opportunities to participate in readings on and off campus throughout the academic year.
