Creative Writing

Program Overview

Have you always dreamed of being a published fiction writer? Or are you looking to get a degree and pursue a career as an editor, copywriter, or lyricist? However big your goals are, our Creative Writing program will help you sharpen your creative writing skills and become a strong, confident writer.

By enrolling in the program, you will engage with a community of supportive writers through classes, workshops, and contests that will help you market your work. Program instructors will teach you how to analyze and evaluate aesthetic values, literary styles, and technical elements and theories across multiple genres and you will explore the dynamic relationships among people, cultures, and the physical world. You'll receive guidance from established authors during the creative writing process through problem-solving, experimentation, and inspiration to produce original fiction and non-fiction work across multiple genres. Upon completing the program, you will have a portfolio worthy of publication.
