Creative Writing

Bachelor Of Arts in English Creative Writing Emphasis

Worthy arguments are made for applying "creative" to many genres of writing. The creative writing courses in the English Department concentrate on short fiction and on poetry. A playwriting course is also offered. These courses are useful to any persons interested in improving their communication skills. Business classes teach one how to spend money; writing courses teach one how to spend words - both skills are needed for success in the 21st century.
