Creative Writing

What is it?

Creative Writing blends the practical and the ideal as it gives you the space and challenge to explore and develop your creative talent. This concentration allows you to explore equally the different forms of creative writing – fiction, poetry, and nonfiction – or to focus primarily on one of them. You can also develop a specific, marketable focus in fact-based writing, choosing from courses in biography, science writing, article writing, and editing.

What are the benefits?

The Creative Writing concentration will hone your skills in both practical and creative forms by giving you instruction and intensive practice in writing. Students of creative writing bring to the workplace a nuanced and practical understanding of how to employ imaginative language: in print, online, in classrooms, and in a wide range of communication-based environments.
