Does anybody know of a good and affordable online Masters of Creative Writing Course they can recommend? I'm ready to do my masters but don't want to do it in education, would rather do it in something I love.
So many universities and colleges offer online MFA's now. I mean, many. You might just want to check out a college you like and see if they offer a degree like that.
I do know somebody who wound up publishing a book who got her MFA from Vermont College--they offer a low residency MFA:
Come to me and I'll learn ya a thing or two and then I'll print out a master's degree in anything ya want. I am an official Master Brisketeer ya know, and I can make the the 2nd one since I stand alone and created the dam thing.
try universalclasses.com i have completed some creative writing courses there as well as others they might have somethings there or if not you can contact them and they might be able to help

Hey man, that's my job.
Stanford University has some: http://csp.stanford.edu/onlinewriting/
UBC, where I did my undergrad BFA, has a distance-ed creative writing program. I'm currently doing my MFA in Creative Writing. The ones I'm familiar with are UBC, Godard and Benington. They're all fairly reputable.

I couldn't find the words to describe how happy I was to pass my Creative Writing Course.
There's a website called www.gradinsider.com where you can do an advanced search for graduate creative writing programs by genre, low or full residency, country, etc. There's a bunch of student reviews for a bunch of the writing programs, a lot of which I think are pretty useful for prospective students.
I have an MFA in Creative Writing. The two years it took me to earn it at what used to be Vermont College were full of hard work, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I now teach online full time as a result of earning this degree.
