ABOUT THE EMPHASIS IN CREATIVE WRITING

The Department of English offers interactive classes in the writing of fiction and poetry—three (3) seminars and six (6) workshops. All instructors are themselves writers. 

To receive a letter of completion, majors will take any two (2) workshops in either genre.  Workshops create feedback from instructors and peers in a structured written and verbal format.

Also required are two (2) seminars (one lower-division and one upper-division) focused on close reading and practical criticism.

A portfolio of the work written in Emphasis workshops and seminars is collected and submitted to the program coordinator for the letter of completion.
