The Creative Writing minor allows students to pursue their interest in one genre or multiple genres, working with faculty recognized for both their writing and their teaching.
By studying the elements that underlie children’s and teen literature, students will gain a fuller understanding of what it means to write for these age groups. Students will prepare a manuscript, consisting of either two picture books, two short stories or an excerpt from a middle grade or young adult novel.
Students explore the wealth and depth of their unique experience in order to craft works that extend, deepen, question and meditate on the authors’ real and crafted autobiographical identity.
