Creative Writing programs are typically available to writers from the high school level all the way through graduate school/university and adult education.
Traditionally these programs are associated with the English departments in the respective schools, but this notion has been challenged in recent time as more creative writing programs have spun off into their own department.
Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary tropes or with various traditions of poetry and poetics.
Due to the looseness of the definition, it is possible for writing such as feature stories to be considered creative writing, even though they fall under journalism, because the content of features is specifically focused on narrative and character development.
Both fictional and non-fictional works fall into this category, including such forms as novels, biographies, short stories, and poems.
In the academic setting, creative writing is typically separated into fiction and poetry classes, with a focus on writing in an original style, as opposed to imitating pre-existing genres such as crime or horror.
Most Creative Writing degrees for undergraduates in college are Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees (BFA).
Some continue to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, the terminal degree in the field. programs are becoming more prevalent in the field, as more writers attempt to bridge the gap between academic study and artistic pursuit.
Our experienced teachers, thought provoking materials and interactive sessions with state-of-the-art facilities are exactly what you need to begin your journey as a writer. Students can purchase books on the first day of their class.
The course, however, is not aimed at those wishing to improve their academic or technical writing. Seats are limited and early applicants will receive priority during registration.
