We also think we’re a good value, especially for the quality of the curriculum and teaching that Hopkins offers.
Our courses are craft-based, meaning nearly all of what you will cover in a class is designed to help you grow as a writer.
Our Science-Medical Writing program has attracted doctors, nurses, and Ph. scientists, but it also includes young old office clerks or lab technicians – or just writers who love science.
In Fiction and Nonfiction, we enjoy a similarly wide range of ages, professions, and walks of life. Many writers need help with structure, voice, dialogue, reporting, or scores of other on-the-page skills.
The joke we make is that your grade in sophomore French five or ten years ago should have little impact on your current writing potential.
The Writing Sample and Statement of Purpose are the key to our review.

For all concentrations, we offer high-quality teaching that is both supportive and demanding.
