Creative Writing Concentration

Invigorate the imagination and amplify the creative process.

A Rigorous Curriculum

Study and compose poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in a collaborative, comprehensive fashion. Workshop-based courses provide students with an expansive awareness of the different critical traditions that shape literary history. It’s all about the process: creative spark to draft, revision, submission, and publication. 

Perfect Your Art

Students utilize their capacity to analyze and examine their own writing in a self-reflective manner while learning the importance of drafting and revision. Through these processes, students learn to work collaboratively in a community of writers, giving and receiving feedback on their work-in-progress in professional-style workshops. 

Produce a Literary Journal

Students also work on the school’s literary magazine, The Carson Reviewfrom assessing, editing, and proofreading submissions to designing, distributing, and publicizing the journal itself.
