Creative Writing Program
The creative writing program offers courses and individual instruction in poetry writing, fiction writing, and literary non-fiction. At the 100 level, creative writing courses combine extensive reading with a number of writing assignments. 200-level courses offer workshops which focus on critique of student work. A team-taught advanced writing seminar is available to Division III students working in any of the three genres. With the assistance of the staff of the Writing Center, faculty in creative writing also serve as chair or member of Division I, II, and III committees.
It is our conviction that students learn to write well by reading a great deal in the genres they plan to use, by participating in a writing workshop each semester in which they present their own work and carefully critique, in both writing and conversation, their classmates' work, and by using the rest of their time to fill their minds with interesting things to write about.
