The Creative Writing Program offers workshop courses in fiction and poetry writing, and sponsors the Barbara & David Zalaznick Reading Series during the academic year.
More than 500 undergraduates enroll in the program’s courses annually, many from schools outside the College of Arts & Sciences.
We’re an undergraduate-only institution, so there are plenty of chances to interact one-on-one with your professors.
So we have dedicated creative writing housing, poetry slams, seven student-run publications and frequent late-night literary gatherings. From Day One, your work will be critiqued by professional, published authors—who are also your professors.
