EMBEDDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EVOLVED PRACTICE OF CREATIVE WRITING IN A SCHOOL OF ART AND DESIGN
Embedding the development of an evolved practice of creative writing in a school of art and design, the Creative Writing program offers a unique opportunity to explore writing's relationship with contemporary art through interdisciplinary and hybridized forms.
The major is centered around creative writing studio classes in a variety of genres to build experience with the art of writing. We explore the use of language as a visual medium and incorporate writing into our visual work. We support both experimental writing practices and those focused on contemporary forms of fiction, poetry, and script writing.
