Student writing and listening in class.

Creative Writing

The 18-credit Creative Writing minor provides a broad yet thorough introduction to each area of the discipline, including the essay, fiction, and poetry. It enables students to pursue their majors and career goals with greater literacy, sharper analytical skills and more polished writing skills. It also enables students to engage in and foster creative expression. Literature majors may pursue the creative writing minor. In that case, Introduction to Creative Writing will count for both the advanced writing elective in the major and for the creative writing minor.

Corner Pocket

Corner Pocket, our student literary magazine, was founded in 2014. Published once a year, the magazine features fiction and poetry. Students can earn valuable editorial and publishing experience participating in its production and marketing. For more information, e-mail [email protected].
