Creative Writing Emphasis

At Saint Mary's you will have the chance to become part of our long history of celebrating and supporting the literary arts with a concentration in creative writing.

Each year, the English department and its M.F.A. program host a reading series featuring some of the country’s leading novelists, poets and essayists, including time to personally interact with them. We offer at least one undergraduate course in the writing of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, or drama (for screen and stage) every semester.

Note also that creative writing faculty often teach writing classes during Jan Term. Choosing these courses will allow you to develop your writing even further.
