Becoming an adept writer is central to many fields beyond publishing. A research scientist needs to be able to write grants and document her research. A marketing professional needs to be able to sell the consumer on his product. A business professional needs to be able to write strategic communications to their staff. Through the center's programs, you can take courses led by distinguished visiting writers, attend readings and workshops, contribute to the literary magazines Open Field and Boom, or participate in one of the many creative student organizations on campus.
The study of creative writing develops insightful and imaginative thinkers who communicate complex ideas in new ways. By honing a diverse set of reading and writing skills, these majors and minors come to recognize the artistic achievements, insights, and possibilities inherent in literature and use this knowledge to inform their own creative work. We emphasize a sense of community in the department and in the larger world by exploring diverse perspectives and ways of thinking, with the goal of instilling in creative writing students the power of literature and a drive to make a difference. Our emphasis on close, attentive reading and textual analysis, as well as on craft and technique, cultivates critical thinking, creative problem solving and communication skills, actively preparing students for success in their professional lives and beyond. As lifelong learners, the creative writing and English faculty are active in their areas of interest, bringing those insights into the classroom and extended community.
