Creative Writing Center

The Creative Writing Center brings together faculty from various academic departments to provide courses in the writing of fiction, poetry, plays, non-fictional prose and translation.

We believe that all students benefit from the discipline of writing out of their own and out of imagined experience, and from submitting that writing, in small classes, to the criticism of instructors and other student writers.
