CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP
This one-credit course meets five Saturday mornings throughout
the Fall semester. The purpose of this course is to give
students a chance to develop skills as writers of fiction

The Creative Writing Workshops provide an opportunity for
students to exchange ideas and criticism and to interact
with preeminent contemporary writers.
