Portland Master of Fine Arts in Writing Office


530 NW 12th Ave.
Portland, OR 97209



The Pacific University Master of Fine Arts in Writing program moved into offices in Portland in 2012. The office offers a Pacific University presence in the heart of Portland’s literary Pearl District. The office provides a home-base for the low-residency MFA writing program and also hosts occasional special events in Portland. The graduate writing program is conducted mostly remotely, with students and faculty gathering for two 10-day residencies each year. The residencies are held on the Pacific University Forest Grove Campus in June and in Seaside, Ore., in January.
