You have a BA already, I assume?

Anyway, if you want a master’s degree in creative writing, you typically need to look for MFA programs. UVA has one, as do lots of other schools in Pennsylvania and Virginia (and Maryland and DC); I don’t know what type of writing you do, or I’d try to give more specific guidance. Degrees in publishing are much harder to find – and frankly, not necessarily your best route into a career that doesn’t pay very well at the entry level. If you need something to spruce up your resume, try looking for certificate programs in editing instead. And I’d forget about English altogether; advanced degrees there mostly involve analyzing long-completed work, not trying to improve it.
