About the Program

The English Department’s Concentration in Creative Writing bridges the traditions of the English Department with the innovations needed in today’s creative market place. Students take a strong core of literature to meet their individual interests and career goals. Part of the program is a tiered system of Creative Writing Workshops, one at the entry level that will include both poetry and fiction, and one at the intermediate level in either poetry or fiction that the student will choose. Students also select workshop courses such as Children’s Literature, Young Adult Writing, and Script and Playwriting, in which they work one-on-one with faculty members who are professional, published writers. The Concentration requires an internship program with opportunities to work with local presses, publishing companies and creative arts organizations.
