John Fiero, Ph.D.
Professor Emeritus
Ph. D. Florida State University, 1968
Dr. Fiero retired as an Emeritus Professor of English in 1998 after serving on the University of Louisiana faculty for 27 years. During that time he taught an array of courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, with a principal focus on dramatic literature and the craft of writing plays. His primary area was the drama of the English Renaissance, but he also taught modern drama, American drama, and, for the Theatre Department, the history of theatre. For several years he served as the director of the Deep South Writers Conference and as the head of Creative Writing.

Dr. Fiero’s interest in computers and their application to writing and editing documents has prompted him to teach technical writing as an adjunct faculty member. While as a full-time member of the faculty he did teach technical writing, it was not of central concern to him. During his most active years, his primary interest was in dramatic literature and theatre. He had experience as a playwright, director, and actor, and he was the first artistic director of the now defunct Lafayette Community Theatre and one of the founding playwrights of the experimental Eavesdrop Theatre. He has several published plays and articles on, among other things, playwrights and specific dramatic works. He has also worked as a freelance writer, notably for the Gale Group, and has published well over a hundred pieces in such publications as the International Directory of Company Histories.
