The program’s undergraduate curriculum offers introductory, intermediate, and advanced writing courses in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Highlights of undergraduate offerings include:
Study the craft of writing with the program’s award-winning faculty writers. You’ll read exemplary authors, hone your skills with brief writing exercises, and create your own stories and poems. In courses ranging from introductory to advanced level fiction and poetry, you’ll also develop imaginative and critical thinking and interpretive skills, as well as create a portfolio of original work.
Join like-minded peers in a learning community with the shared mission of deepening your intellectual lives and developing yourselves as literary artists over an entire year. Nowhere else on campus do undergraduate students receive the sustained and close attention to their creative writing that the Kidd Workshops offer.
Students should consult their major advisors about integrating creative writing courses into their programs.
