Creative Writing

Courses in creative writing are designed for students who wish to develop their skills and appreciation of creative writing in a variety of genres (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, playwriting, screenwriting) and for those intending to pursue studies in creative writing at the graduate level.

Any English major may include one Creative Writing course in the major plan. Non-English majors may pursue a minor as described under Program Requirements and Opportunities. While there is no existing major in Creative Writing, exceptionally well qualified students have completed majors in Creative Writing through the Independent Major Program.

All students interested in Creative Writing courses must:

  1. Preregister using the Creative Writing B999 placeholder course. 
  2. Please complete and submit this questionnaire by the end of the pre-registration period.
