The Creative Writing Program

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. Note that 300-level workshops in Playwriting and Screenwriting do not require any pre-requisite.

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.

Applications for Fall 2017 courses are available at the Creative Writing Program office in N209 Callaway and may also be downloaded from the Quicklinks section on the right. You may also e-mail pvitari@emory.edu to request an application in Word. If you are not on campus this semester (Oxford, study abroad, etc.,) or are mobility impaired, you may e-mail your application to Paula Vitaris at pvitari@emory.edu. Creative Writing workshops fill up quickly so apply as soon as possible. Applications will be accepted up to the end of add-drop in the fall. 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.
