Fuse the art of creative and critical writing.

Spring at the Organic Farm

Bring together creative and critical writing — fusing rigorous literary study with the practice of writing as an art form. You will become a flexible, highly skilled writer and reader. Working in dialogue with authors from a variety of historical, cultural and aesthetic traditions, together we will reimagine the world of literary possibilities.

  • Create and collaborate with a community of dynamic thinkers and writers
  • Discover the diversity of literary traditions and innovations
  • Engage in cultural and intellectual exchange through writing, reading, and translation
  • Explore intersections of cultural and political discourse
  • Pursue the creative process in the development of artistic mastery
  • Experience the excitement of developing a complex manuscript from a blank page to a finished work

Advanced work will prepare you to go further - on your own as a practicing writer; through graduate study in creative writing, literature, library science, communications or the arts; and into careers in related fields.
