Café MFA is the the online journal of the Creative Writing Program at American University. Produced in conjunction with Visiting Writers Series and other program events, the blog features student, faculty, and visiting author interviews and excerpts.
Folio is a nationally recognized literary journal sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences at American University in Washington, DC. Since 1984, we have published original creative work by both new and established authors. Past issues have included work by Michael Reid Busk, Billy Collins, William Stafford, and Bruce Weigl, and interviews with Michael Cunningham, Charles Baxter, Amy Bloom, Ann Beattie, and Walter Kirn. We look for well-crafted poetry and prose that is bold and memorable.
Karan Madhok, CAS/MFA '18
At AU, it's so great to be around others who share my obsessions.
Karan Madhok is known for his sports journalism on basketball in India. His work appears on his own blog, Hoopistani, and in major sports publications in the US and overseas. As an undergrad in the UK, he majored in computer science, but his passion for writing persisted. He enjoys the creative atmosphere his colleagues and professors give AU's MFA program, where he is working on his first novel.
For more than 30 years, writers have come to American University to develop their work and exchange ideas in the District’s only creative writing MFA program.
