Creative Writing and Thought


Better Thinkers Make Better Writers

In Creative Writing and Thought, students take a mixture of courses designed to help them practice the craft of creative writing while exploring its philosophical underpinnings. By recognizing that reading and writing are profoundly inter-related, students learn to be better readers of imaginative works and to take their reading experiences into their writing. Students are provided with opportunities to share their work in group critiques, writing workshops, campus competitions, and informal conversations during weekly meetings of the Wordsmiths.
