The Colosseum Institute is thrilled to announce that its faculty have founded the new Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Saint Thomas, in Houston. Beginning August 2021, James Matthew Wilson and Joshua Hren now direct the MFA program with a mission identical with that of the Colosseum Institute: to renew craft and discipline in the literary arts and to restore them to their proper spiritual and intellectual richness within the broad Catholic tradition.

The Colosseum Summer Institute will not disappear with the new program but rather will be renewed and expanded through this new program. Beginning June 2022, the University of Saint Thomas Summer Institute for Writers will continue the CSI's past work and expand both its reach and ambition in mission. More details will follow in the months ahead.
Colosseum Books will continue to publish its impressive list of titles. In coordination with the MFA we shall also launch a new journal this coming year, appropriately taking its name from the Christopher Dawson journal that inspired our name: The Colosseum. Check back here for news.
