To serve the needs of all writing students, we offer two Creative Writing options. The first is an all writing track for those who just want to take courses in Creative Writing. The second, English: Literature and Creative Writing is for those who share the belief that reading good literature enhances writing. This second option is recommended for those who are considering a profession in teaching and for those writers who are thinking of going on to graduate school in English Literature.
A common axiom among writers is that “every kind of writing improves every other form of writing.” At this university we offer students the opportunity to engage in a wide range of writing genres that highlight all interests: travel writing, personal writing, memoir, writing for children, poetry, fiction, literary non-fiction, and environmental writing.
