Welcome to our writing community!
The Lindenwood University MFA in Writing program offers an active and supportive writing community. We host MFA Readings for graduating students and alumni, as well as other literary events throughout the year. Students and alumni can keep in touch and receive program updates and writing-related information through our MFA Students group in Canvas, our program Facebook page, our literary journal Facebook page for The Lindenwood Review, our Student/Alumni Facebook group, and by attending our events. Calls for submissions and upcoming literary events are posted regularly on our program Facebook page.
