MFA in Writing


The MFA in Writing Program at Lindenwood University focuses on the practice and study of creative writing. We offer personalized instruction in small workshop sessions featuring a wide range of genres—fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, scriptwriting, and narrative journalism—along with offering literature and craft classes. MFA students may also earn course credit for serving as editorial assistants on the literary journal The Lindenwood Review.

LU MFA students can take classes entirely in the classroom, entirely online, or through a combination of in-class and online coursework. In-class students meet once per week from 6-10 p.m. to earn 9 credit hours per quarter. Fully online students have no residency requirement; all coursework, including the final thesis, may be taken online. Fully online students may take one, two, or three 3-credit online classes per quarter. The MFA in Writing degree is a 48-credit hour program, with the final three hours dedicated to a thesis in the writer’s chosen genre. For submission requirements, see Prospective Students.
