Creative Writing

Undergraduate Programs


The Creative Writing Program is staffed by published poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers. We believe students at all levels of instruction should be guided by individuals steeped in their own creative projects and familiar with the common challenges surrounding bringing imaginative works to completion. The creative writing curriculum assumes that writing and reading are complementary activities, and so students in our programs read some of the best literary works of the past and present while exploring issues of craft and genre that will allow them to take their own writing to a new level.
