The MFA in Writing program at Lindenwood University focuses on the study and practice of the craft of creative writing. We offer a wide variety of craft classes, literature classes, and writing workshops in small class settings. Coursework can be taken fully online (no residency requirement), fully on-campus, or through a combination of both delivery methods. Classes are taught by experienced writers who are published authors, journalists, and editors. Students can serve as editorial assistants for The Lindenwood Review literary journal. Program acceptance is based upon approval of a submitted creative writing sample and statement of purpose.
