The Graduate Program in Creative Writing at the University of Kansas offers a three-year MFA and five-year PhD in Creative Writing, with tracks in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and playwriting. During coursework, students take workshops, forms, literature, theory, and interdisciplinary courses to help prepare them for both creative work and scholarly research. By the end of their study, students produce a book-length manuscript of poetry, prose, plays, or a hybrid text.

Students regularly engage in KU and Lawrence's literary community by planning, promoting, attending, and participating in readings on and off campus. Graduate students have the opportunity to gain valuable editorial experience working with Beecher's magazine, the graduate student-run national literary journal housed at the University of Kansas. 

Funding is available for the majority of graduate students via teaching and research assistantships, and there are additional student work options on campus. As Graduate Teaching Assistants, students also have the opportunity to teach creative writing. Students receive funding from the Graduate School, the English Department, and the Student Association of Graduates in English (SAGE) to present at and to attend conferences.
