Creative Writing


Cowley encourages students to develop their creative writing skills as a form of self-expression and a means of communicating emotions, ideas, history, and perception of the world and the human condition.

The creative writing program provides opportunities for original compositions in various genres: poetry, short stories, non-fiction features, children's literature, dramas, and character sketches. Some students may even investigate potential publication of their best work in literary venues.


Writers' Corners, sponsored by Creative Claws writing club, give students a venue for sharing their creative works.
