Creative Writing

Courses in creative writing are designed for students who wish to develop their skills and talents in creative writing in a variety of genres (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, playwriting, screenwriting) and for those intending to pursue studies in creative writing at the graduate level.

Any major in Literatures in English may include one Creative Writing course in the major plan. Non-English majors may pursue a minor as described under Program Requirements and Opportunities

All students interested in specific Creative Writing courses must:
