The Concentration in Creative Writing allows student to focus on the writing of fiction, poetry and/or creative non-fiction, in addition to receiving graduate-level training in literature and literary criticism. Graduate creative writing courses combine workshop situations with one-on-one instruction and enable students to work closely with practicing professionals. The New Writing Series offers a lively schedule of readings throughout the year. Students in the concentration may give public readings on campus and contribute editorial assistance to the graduate literary magazine, The Stolen Island Review.
