The Lilly Lieb Port creative writing program is a highly selective and structured BA program that shares features of the college’s arts programs. The purpose of this program is to offer motivated, talented, and committed students a dynamic context and community in which to explore all aspects of creative writing.
As an integral part of the program, readings are held each semester by students, faculty, alumni who have published their writing, and professional writers. Editors and other members of the publishing world are also invited to speak and share their expertise with students.
Study Abroad Opportunities
Creative writing majors are encouraged to apply to the college’s summer program in France, where they will participate in an intensive writing workshop, drawing on explorations of the surroundings for material.
