Creative Writing


Creative Writing

English majors concentrating in Creative Writing will complete a 39 credit combination of literature courses and workshops in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama. Students are encouraged to explore a variety of styles, genres, literary forms, and methods of written expression. As workshops will vary in style, students are allowed to repeat advanced-level workshops (with different instructors) for credit. Introductory and intermediate workshops provide a foundation for the beginning writer, while advanced workshops allow the more experienced writer to further develop hers or his own style and voice. In addition to coursework, students are encouraged to attend readings and to submit their work to Promethean (the official literary journal of City College), the CCNY Spring Poetry Festival, and to the Annual English Department Awards & Prizes.
