Home » Art Disciplines » Creative Writing

Through an intensive study of the narrative form, writers learn to pull from their experience, emotion, and imagination to craft and edit works of written art. With particular attention to the building blocks of writing: plot, theme, character development, sensory details, rhythm, setting, and form, budding authors explore their craft by pushing on the boundaries of narrative in short stories, plays, poems, and creative nonfiction. The writing major is a safe space for exploring and sharing ideas, as well as for giving and receiving both peer and mentor feedback.
