Some instructors are full-time writers or editors who have time to teach only every year or two. Others maintain their professional credentials but teach more often to provide continuity in the curriculum and develop deeper relationships with students. This mix produces a faculty aware of current trends but focused on the art and craft of teaching.

The program is chaired by the prolific poet and novelist Brad Leithauser. The program director is Karen Houppert, who also serves as the advisor for nonfiction and fiction students.
