Creative Writing

This series of courses offers students a practical, theoretical and historical understanding of the art and craft of writing nonfiction and fiction prose and poetry, as well as experimenting in digital storytelling and interactive media. The minor encourages students to use those skills and insights for interdisciplinary projects and the enrichment of their careers and personal lives.

Students choose either four workshop courses (ENGL 211, 386, 389, 390, 490, 511, 543) and one literature course OR five workshop courses to complete the minor. We recommend taking ENGL-211 (Introduction to Creative Writing) as a first course. Please see our flyer to determine which classes are applicable to the immersion.
