The Creative Writing Minor emphasizes student creativity, expression, and production through intensive reading from a variety of cultural backgrounds and time periods, extensive writing and revising, and active discussion. Courses offered for the minor introduce students to the major literary genres of prose and poetry, and sharpen their writing skills. Students learn to contextualize literary styles and find their own voice within them.
