Creative Writing


"Encouraging our students' creative narrative expression"

Glasses on bookA variety of creative writing courses are offered as electives. Our emphasis is on developing sources and methods for encouraging our students' creative narrative expression. Over the past three years, BFA students have submitted work to local and national competitions and have been honored with publication. Our creative writing course sequence includes poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction and script-writing.

The school participates in the National Poetry Month every April. Students submit poems for the Poetry Contest. Poems are read by the winners during Poetry Week.
