The Creative Writing concentration trains students in writing imaginatively for professional publication. Students strengthen their creative skills in a variety of genres through a series of writing workshops, which they take alongside courses in literary history and analysis. They acquire a solid grounding in literary forms; they learn to think critically and creatively about how writers represent the material of everyday life; they gain insight into writing and audience through the intense study of style, voice, and genre; and they develop an understanding of the standards by which literary works are judged.
