Creative Writing Doctorate

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette's Creative Writing concentration offers students the unique opportunity to integrate their writing life with their professional and academic goals.

We encourage multi-genre study and offer concentrations in

  • Poetry
  • Fiction
  • Drama
  • Creative NonFiction ​

Workshops and courses in pedagogy, theory, and craft help students deepen the aesthetic and critical dimensions of their creative work. Our program encourages our students to be scholars as well as writers, and prepares them for a competitive job market.

A student reading series, two literary journals, and an invested faculty and student community are some of the ways in which our program works diligently to create an atmosphere where creativity can thrive.
