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.

The creative writing major can combine the degree with interests in English, education, communications, and other areas like psychology, sociology, and the arts to be ready for a multitude of transfer options.

Writers' Corner

Writers' Corners, sponsored by Creative Claws writing club, give students a venue for sharing their creative works, and a showcase is held each semester.
