The Creative Writing Program
PLEASE SEND YOUR APPLICATION IN WORD FORMAT AS ONE DOCUMENT WITH ANY REQUIRED WRITING SAMPLES ATTACHED
All majors must take one 200-level introductory workshop in prose or poetry. The same is required of non-majors who wish to take creative writing workshops, though some professors may choose to waive this requirement for junior and senior non-majors. The requirement is never waived for majors. The only 300-level class that does not have a 200-level pre-requisite is ENGCW/THEA 372RW Playwriting (offered only in the fall semester). Some instructors may require writing samples even though you have taken a pre-requisite course.
Students who have completed the 200-level requirement may move into any Intermediate workshop. Creative Writing majors may take only ONE 200-level course as part of the major.
(For Advanced Courses in Spring semesters): Students who make a A- or better in the Intermediate level workshops may apply to take advanced level workshops. All other students must apply to these workshops with a manuscript submission (students must also complete the application form). The individual instructor may require manuscript submission from all students for admission to the advanced workshops. Only students who receive this positive assessment of readiness will enter advanced workshops.
All Creative Writing courses are permission-only and require an application to be submitted to the Creative Writing Program office. The deadline is 5 p.m., Monday, May 24. (Late applications will be accepted until the end of add-drop in the fall.) Applications should be e-mailed in Word format to email@example.com. If your application includes a writing sample, the sample must be attached to the application and sent as ONE DOCUMENT IN WORD FORMAT. Applications will be available may also be downloaded from the Quicklinks section on the right. You may also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application in Word format. Creative Writing workshops fill up quickly so apply as soon as possible. If the class you apply for is full, you will be added to a waiting list and you will be contacted by e-mail if a space opens up.
Please read the Creative Writing Program website's Course Atlas description before applying. The atlas includes details about required writing samples, pre-requisites and other information you need to know before choosing a class. The College course atlas and OPUS do not contain the complete atlas information.
