Creative Writing

Creative writing opens doors to the stories that impact our lives and leave us changed. 

Available as an undergraduate minor or a graduate degree, English majors who concentrate in creative writing study the craft of writing under the mentorship of faculty who are accomplished authors. 

How will I focus my studies?

Workshops focus on poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction, and the course sequence culminates in a capstone that allows students to produce an extended body of original work. The creative writing program also hosts an active reading series and oversees the publication of Calliope, a literary journal edited and designed entirely by WVU undergraduates.
