LSU fully funds all students accepted to the program, offering teaching assistantships, enhancements and supplements, and a tuition waiver for out-of-state students. Screenwriting, writing for the stage and nonfiction, as well as poetry and fiction, are offered on the graduate level—and students are encouraged to take workshops in all genres. The program offers opportunities to gain editorial experience by working for theSouthern Review and New Delta. LSU faculty members are nationally-prominent writers and the ratio of students to faculty is excellent.
