Creative Writing (Minor)

The minor in Creative Writing gives students broad experience in the problems and processes of writing, editing, and publishing creative work; students will write and workshop beyond the beginner's level in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in an intellectual setting that is challenging and nurturing.
